LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas officials are investigating five fires that happened within minutes of each other on Easter morning.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2oG2wz0 ) that investigators are searching for a link between the fires, but have not yet found one.

It all started with two dumpster fires early Sunday near downtown Las Vegas.

Those fires were followed by reports of a vehicle, palm tree and grass on fire at a hotel. Another vehicle fire followed at a different hotel and the fifth fire involved a vacant one-story building.

Officials say no injuries have been reported.

They say only the fifth reported fire caused damage to a building, which was about $10,000 worth.
