OGDEN — Authorities are investigating a series of suspicious fires that broke out Sunday evening.

According to a news release from the Ogden City Fire Department, crews responded around 10:30 p.m. to three fires in the area of 624 W. 21st St., near the Ogden Parkway Trail System. Ogden firefighters, along with Weber Fire District, extinguished all three fires, which each burned less than a half-acre.

Another fire was called in just after 11 p.m., about a mile to the east of the first three fires, according to the release. The fire was within about 150 feet of a home, but crews extinguished it before it could damage the property.

Authorities ask anyone who saw suspicious activity Sunday evening in the area of the fires to call 801-629-8221.
