FireDepartmentNAUGATUCK — Fire marshals are investigating a series of suspicious brush fires that started late Monday on the Waterbury line.

Firefighters responded after 9:30 p.m. to brush fires off Route 8 southbound and Sheridan Drive in the industrial park. Just after 11 p.m., they responded to brush fires on Platts Mill Road by South Main Street and the boat launch.

All of the fires were small, Fire Chief Ken Hanks said. Five were in the borough, while two were in Waterbury, he said. They were quickly extinguished without injury or property damage, he said.
