HAYS, Kan. (AP) - An investigator from the Kansas fire marshal’s office will help investigate an outbreak of fires in a rural northwestern county.

The Hays Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1qgzRKu ) the Ellis County Rural Fire Department responded Thursday night to five fires in four hours outside the Hays city limits.

Rural Fire Director Dick Klaus said the first call involved a burning pile of trees. That was followed by the burning of a camping trailer, four-wheeler and personal water craft.

Crews also responded to a horse trailer and bales on fire; a fire at a storage shed; and the burning of a trailer house used for storage.

Klaus said he wasn’t sure there was enough evidence left at any of the scenes to determine a cause.
