Butte fire department investigating suspicious fires

Posted: Updated:

BUTTE - Fire officials are investigating after two fires sparked within two hours in Butte.

Fire Chief Jeff Miller says late on Sunday night, firefighters doused a garage fire on the 3000 block of Kennedy. When they returned to the station shortly after midnight on Monday, they observed a grass fire burning on 2300 Placer Street.

Miller says there's not enough information at this point to know whether the two fires are connected. 

Fire Marshal Brian Doherty described the circumstances as "suspicious" to the Montana Standard.
