Molotov cocktail believed to start one of the fires being investigated.

A series of arsons has South Valley fire investigators very busy Tuesday morning. Emergency calls started coming in around 9:30 p.m. Monday night about a fire on Garden, near Race Avenue. Four more fire calls quickly followed.

The fire that caused the most damage happened on Mora, near Bridge Street. Authorities believe someone threw a Molotov cocktail through a window and into a garage that was converted into a home. The fire did not spread to the rest of the house, but the room was destroyed.

No injuries were reported. Authorities are looking for the person behind the fires and investigating if they are connected.
