SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Officials are investigating a Massachusetts fire they believe was caused by arson.

Dennis Leger of the Springfield Fire Department tells The Republican ( ) a pile of wood near a house was set on fire Sunday night. The fire then spread to a fence, tree and a garage, causing about $5,000 in damage.

Firefighters arrived at the scene shortly after the blaze began and were able to put it out before it spread to other homes. Officials determined that arson was the cause.

Leger says investigators are looking for three young kids who were seen running away from the fire.
