EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) - Fire officials say they are investigating several fires in Lyon County as possible arsons.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release it found 14 starting points to a fire Saturday night. The blaze started just north of Interstate 35 and stretched along the Interstate 35 corridor to the Coffey County line.

Authorities are looking for an early 1990s Chevrolet or GMC single or extended cab truck that was dark blue or black. It reportedly was driven by two white males in their mid-30s with full beards.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, Emporia Fire Department and Reading Fire Department responded to the fires.
