SAN JOSE (BCN) -- Arson investigators in San Jose have arrested a 56-year-old woman  in connection with as many as 11 fires that were set in bushes and garbage  cans since Sept. 26, a fire captain said.
Glynnis Sundelius, of San Jose, was arrested after investigators  allegedly witnessed her deliberately set a fire in a garbage can behind Delna  Manor Lane just before 5:45 p.m. on Saturday, San Jose Fire Capt. Mary Gutierrez said.
All 11 fires set in the past 18 days have been reported in an  alley behind Delna Manor Lane, Guterrez said.
No structures were damaged in any of the fires, Gutierrez said,  but the fire department has spent a vast amount of time and resources in  responding to the blazes and calming the neighborhood's residents.
Investigators were working to determine exactly how many of the  fires could be linked to Sundelius, Gutierrez said.
The investigation was expected to continue Monday.
