Rash of suspicious fires, vehicle break-ins keep Evans police busy

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.
