Posted: Updated:

Mount Pleasant Police had a busy weekend responding to calls about small fires.

The department says about 40 fire calls came in from areas where Central Michigan University students live.

All of the fires were in large trash containers, and included furniture that was torched.

The Mount Pleasant Fire Chief called the fires a "waste of resources."

There is a $5,000 reward to help catch those who started the outdoor fires.
