LAKEWOOD — West Metro firefighters are investigating a rash of fires that destroyed cars and structures around Lakewood early Tuesday.
Authorities say one fire started in a vehicle and spread to a home. The home has been declared unlivable, but no injuries were reported.
Bruce Kral, a fire marshall with West Metro Fire Rescue, told The Denver Post investigators are working under the premise that these "suspicious" fires are related and were all started by the same person or persons.
The first fire, Kral said, was reported at 4:22 a.m.
At least three other car fires were reported overnight, and authorities believe they were all set by an arsonist.
