SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) - Several small fires occurred mid-week in the Sierra Vista area are considered suspicious and being investigated for a possible connection.

One fire started in the lower area of Ramsey Canyon south of Sierra Vista. Another, which is thought to be accidental, was a brush fire along Highway 92 south of the city.

Three other fires were reported Wednesday evening inside Sierra Vista.

A thrown cigarette may have started one of the three fires, a second is considered suspicious, and a pickup truck was seen in the field where the third fire started.

According to the Sierra Vista Herald (http://ow.ly/vVI2U ), officials say they’re looking for a connection partly because the fires occurred in a short span of time.
