ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — There is a large police presence in the area of Jay and Orchard Streets in the City of Rochester. 

News10NBC's crew on the scene reports that as of late Sunday night there have been many fires set in the front yards and streets in the area, possibly linked to a protest over the fatal police-involved shooting of Mark Gaskill on Friday. 

A News10NBC photojournalist reports that some police are protecting fire crews as they work to put out the fires. 

This is a developing situation and News10NBC will have more information as it becomes available.
