Porta Potty Arsonist Strikes Again in SF

Another portable toilet was found charred in San Francisco Sunday  afternoon, this time in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood, police said  today.

The arson is the 23rd such incident since early November. Most  have occurred in or near the Russian Hill area, police spokeswoman Sgt. Lyn  Tomioka said.

This one, reported at 4:25 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of  Kansas and 15th streets, was far from Russian Hill, and arson investigators  have not said whether they believe the same arsonist is responsible.

"They're not speculating if it's the same person, or a copycat,"  Tomioka said.
