Wauwatosa resident accused of setting string of fires in downtown Port

    A 23-year-old Wauwatosa man was charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court Tuesday with setting a string of fires in downtown Port Washington early Sunday morning.

    Matthew Gleissner is charged with one felony count of arson of a building for damaging the Ozaukee County Administration Center, four felony counts of arson to property other than a building — a trailered boat and three cars — and one misdemeanor count of attempted arson to property other than a building.

    Gleissner made his initial court appearance Tuesday before Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Joseph Voiland.

    Gleissner remains in the Ozaukee County jail, authorities said. Bail was set at $40,000 by Voiland.

    Port Washington Police Chief Kevin Hingiss said that, although damage from the fires was limited to buildings, there was a great potential for serious injury.

    One of the early-morning fires was in a dumpster behind Pasta Shoppe, which has residences on its upper floors, Hingiss said. If the building had caught fire, he said, “we could have been looking at homicide.”
