ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Enfield officials are investigating whether an early morning barn fire is connected to a series of suspicious blazes in the Hazardville section of town.

Firefighters responded to the barn fire shortly before 7:30 a.m. Friday and extinguished it by about 8:40 a.m.

Enfield fire spokesman Mark Zarcaro told the Journal Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1tRCORj ) that there were no animals in the barn, which is located only about 10 feet from a house. No injuries were reported.

Zarcaro said investigators are looking into whether it is related to eight suspected arsons in the same area that date back to August.

The fire on Friday occurred across the street from a vacant barn that burned to the ground in November.

Mayor Scott Kaupin says there is significant concern in the community about the arsons.
