Town of Evans police were investigating several suspicious fires and vehicle break-ins Thursday morning in the Highland area between Prescott Drive and Schuyler Drive, on the Lake Erie side of Route 5.
A vehicle fire on Wayne Drive at about 5:30 a.m. was extinguished by Highland Hose Volunteer Fire Company before it spread to a nearby residence.
Police then responded to a brush fire on Lake Shore Road near Prescott, which the North Evans Volunteer Fire Company extinguished.
Police were then dispatched to a structure fire on Wellington Drive, where two family members were awakened by police and escaped. The fire did significant damage to the attached garage of the single-family home, which is uninhabitable, police said.
Several vehicles in the area also were reported to have been entered.
