Suspected South Shore serial arsonists arrested

Plymouth County prosecutors and the state fire marshal are expected to release more information this afternoon.

Two Middleboro men were arrested in connection with a fire in West Bridgewater and authorities believe they may be responsible for a string of arson fires on the South Shore in recent months.

Mark Sargent, 45, and Jeanmarie Louis, 23, are so far charged with burning a building and attempt to burn a public building, according to the Plymouth district attorney's office.

The office scheduled a news conference this afternoon with the state fire marshal to release more information.

During their arraignment in Brockton District Court this morning, a prosecutor said authorities have linked Sargent to nearly two dozen other fires in recent months, according to the Globe.
