Redding fire officials are investigating what they are referring to as "suspicious" fires from the past few days.

One fire broke out late Tuesday night in a vacant filed near Magalia Blueview Streets. Fire officials say they found a road flare in the debris. The blaze was quickly put out by firefighters.

On Thursday night a fire broke out behind the Bethel Center, off of Lake Boulevard near Market Street.

Both fires started in areas known to be frequented by transients, and both are in dense areas of grass and brush.
