Officials are awaiting the results of a fire investigation report before disclosing the cause of two suspicious fires Tuesday morning.
According to officials, around 2:30 a.m., members of the Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department initially responded to a 911 report of a fire at a modular located at 10431 North County Road 200 East.
No one was inside the modular during the fire, which may possibly have been abandoned.
While attempting to put out that fire, Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Pete Taylor said firefighters noticed flames coming from an abandoned home next door to the first fire scene, located at 10461 N CR 200 E.
Although there were water hydrants in close proximity to the fire scene, Taylor said members of the Brazil City Fire and Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Departments assisted in providing water.
"In this type of weather, you never know what the water conditions will be at a fire scene," Taylor said about the three departments working two fires at once. "However, we were able to get a fairly quick knock down time on both fires and get them under control."
A fire marshal investigated both scenes Tuesday afternoon to determine the cause of the fires, but Taylor said he is currently waiting for the findings of a fire investigation report from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security Division of Fire and Building Safety.
No injuries were reported during either fire.
