Friday, a mobile home was destroyed in a fire on Hays Road near the Parker County line.
“The property owner was grinding and sparks got into grass,” said County Fire Marshal Buddy Harwell. “The fire got into tires and then the mobile home.”
Mineral Wells and Cool-Garner volunteer fire departments responded.
Around 8:30 a.m. Saturday, there was a report of a car fire on Dobbs Valley Road.
“We got there and it appeared to have burned between 3:30 and 7:30 a.m.,” Harwell said.
It turned out the car was stolen from Fort Worth. Investigators were eventually able to determine it was a white, four-door 1996 Lexus ES 300.
That is still under investigation. Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers and remain anonymous at 940-325-0000.
Crimestoppers offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of those committing felony crimes.
There were four more fires Sunday — three along Interstate 20 and one at Strawn.
Harwell said the three along I-20 were in the median between Highway 281 and the Parker County line.
“It could have been a chain dragging or some other item that sparked those fires,” harwell said.
The Strawn fire started when power lines arced, he said, adding that it was small and soon contained.
