Fire crews in Colchester responded to two brush fires Thursday and officials say one appears suspicious.
Fire officials said crews responded to a fire off Prospect Hill Road where several spot fires burned about four acres. No one was hurt.
The fire appears suspicious, according to the fire chief, and the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was called in.
The second fire happened on Shadbush Drive. Fire officials said that fire started near a garage and spread into leaves behind two homes. It burned around a quarter acre and caused some damage to the garage siding. No one was hurt.
Firefighters said wind helped spread the flames in the fires and crews were stretched thin.
Fire danger was considered high Thursday due to dry and windy conditions.
