PROVO, Utah — Fire investigators in Provo said three small fires that broke out early Tuesday morning are “suspicious.”
Crews worked quickly to extinguish three small fires in different parts of the city.
“None of this surprises me but it saddens me, it makes me sad that people are so willing to destroy everything,” said Lake Raven, who lives near one of the abandoned homes.
The first fire broke out shortly before 4:00 a.m. near an abandoned house at 1585 W Center St.
Shortly after the first fire was reported, the Provo Fire Department was notified about a car fire in an alley at 400 W 500 S.
“Our crews responded to the car fire, but [saw] a third fire begin and actually diverted,” said Provo Fire Chief Gary Jolley.
