PROVO, Utah (AP) - Provo officials say crews found and extinguished three more fires that appear to be set by arson early Tuesday.

Provo Fire Marshal Lynn Schofield says the first fire started around 3:45 a.m. near a vacant home in southwest Provo.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1pocz7v ) a burning car was found nearby about an hour later, followed by fire set to a nearby pile of tree trimmings ten minutes later.

Schofield says firefighters extinguished the blazes quickly before much damage was done.

He says investigators are trying to determine if the fires are linked to a series of blazes over the weekend near a vacant duplex of homes in north Provo.
