BENNETT, Colo. (AP) - There’s no word yet about what sparked three grass fires that spread in dry, windy conditions and damaged property in northern Colorado on Sunday.

A fire that burned about 100 acres of mostly pastureland near Bennet destroyed one home and about a dozen cars.

Meanwhile just outside Greeley, a grass fire quickly moved through a field, melting the siding of some nearby homes.

Greeley fire marshal Dale Lyman says investigators pinpointed where the fire started but haven’t turned up any leads. He says it’s possible that the fire was started by a thrown cigarette or someone burning brush, but he says no one had a permit for that.

About 400 acres of open land also burned in Wellington, but no damage or injuries were reported.
