Officials say on Feb. 5, fire crews were called to a home in the 8100 block of S. May Ave. Firefighters located the fire in the backyard of the home and quickly put it out.

Investigators were called to the scene and found evidence of three separate fires in the yard along the house. A bottle of lighter fluid was also located near the fire locations.
