Sheriff Jim Yon reports his deputies are investigating several suspicious fires that began early this morning at 2:41 a.m. Deputies and fire personnel responded to eight different small fires in the areas of Scott Mountain Road west of Sweet Home, Whiskey Butte Drive east of Sweet Home and Washburn Heights Drive outside of Brownsville. All the fires occurred within a two-hour period.
A pick-up described as a small, white or silver, 1990s Nissan Hardbody with a black canopy was seen in the area of one of the fires. This is a vehicle of interest and we are actively looking for it.
These fires are still under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call 541-812-2260.
