Investigators think a pair of forest fires may have been intentionally set Thursday.

Four acres were destroyed in Aurora, slightly more in Alexander.

Forest Rangers say they started within about a half-hour of each other.

They suspect arson because of the remote location and weather conditions.

Responders say it’s been a dry season so far and it doesn’t take much for flames to get out of control.

Anyone with information is asked to call the state arson hotline at (800) 987-0257.
