Fires pop up along I-35

Clear Lake and Ventura firefighters were kept busy along Interstate 35 Friday, June 5, battling a series of grass fires.

A total of five small fires were spread out over a stretch of about one mile along the southbound lanes of I-35 from the B-20 exit to the Clear Lake exits.

Officials believe the blazes could have started by someone throwing something from a vehicle and are asking for the public’s help in finding a vehicle that may be connected to the fires.  Authorities were alerted that someone inside a vehicle pulling a white camper was throwing things out of a vehicle window around the time the fires were reported.

Anyone with information about the fires is asked to contact the Clear Lake Police Department at 641-357-2186 or the Clear Lake Fire Department at 641-357-2613.

No one was hurt by the fires.
