Authorities in Flagstaff say somebody has been intentionally starting fires near the base of a mountain overlooking the city.

 

Flagstaff police and Coconino National Forest officials say they're seeking any information on three fires started Monday along the Pipeline Trail at the base of Mount Elden and two more fire started Tuesday morning in the same area.

The fires grew to about a tenth of an acre before being put out and officials say they didn't pose any threat to nearby neighborhoods.
