Indianapolis arson investigators are looking into four fires that broke out in quick succession Tuesday morning on the city's near-east side. The first two blazes, reported at 4:38 a.m., were located in the 200 block and 300 block of North Beville Avenue, near the intersection of North Keystone Avenue and East New York Street. At 4:56 a.m., crews were called to a trash fire near a residence in the 500 block of Keystone. And at 4:59 a.m., a building at the corner of New York and North Walcott Street caught fire—apparently after it was struck by a burning object, said Indianapolis Fire Department spokesman Lt. James McNair.
