Suspicious fires hit east side


Indianapolis fire investigators are looking into two suspicious fires that broke out early Thursday on the city's east side. One fire, which happened at about 1:20 a.m. in the 5400 block of Julian Avenue in Irvington, destroyed a garage and two vehicles. At about the same time, another fire three blocks away on Hawthorn Lane destroyed a garage and a vehicle. Arson investigators say both fires may have been set by the same person.
