JCSO says 5 separate fires were caused by fireworks. They were most likely, thrown from a moving vehicle, and are believed to be intentionally set.
“Thanks to the quick action of the local residents as well as ODF and the Fire District 3 firefighters this did not get out of hand and the fires were able to be extinguished,” said Aaron Lewis, PIO with JCSO.
