Bridgeport firefighters battled a series of suspicious fires within close proximity of each other Monday.

Firefighters responded to six fires in four locations around Bridgeport. All of the homes were vacant and two on the same street.

Firefighters found the body of a man inside a burning home on Madison Court that began shortly after 3 p.m., in the 2 1/2-story home. The cause of his death is currently unknown.

The most recent fire was reported early Christmas morning.

There is no indication that the early morning fire on Knowlton Street is related to the recent string of fires. According to officials, they are not ruling the possibility out.

Police considered the areas surrounding the fires as crime scenes and kept streets blocked off for most of Monday.
