WEST VALLEY CITY -- Fireworks may have caused fires at two separate West Valley mobile homes early Saturday morning.
Fire officials say a car caught fire around 12:15 a.m. near 7000 West and 2600 South. Witnesses said they saw a firework under the car when the blaze started.
The fire quickly spread to a house and then moved on to a nearby home. Total damage was estimated to be between $60,000 and $100,000.
A second fire started a short time later at a model mobile home on the 7100 block of Apaloosa Drive. Fire crews found a firework inside a plastic box with some fliers. That fire caused about $1,000 in damage to the base of the structure.
Fire investigators are calling both fires suspicious. No one was hurt in either fire.
