GLOVERSVILLE -- Two fires called in an hour apart and a block away from each other are being investigated as suspicious, police said.
While no one was injured in either fire, a building and vehicle were both damaged, police said.
The first fire was called in just after 4 a.m. at 14 N. Water St., police said. Arriving police and firefighters discovered two separate fires in the rear of the building. Firefighters quickly extinguished both, police said.
Then, as firefighters investigated that fire, at about 5:10 a.m. they heard a small explosion coming from the next street over, North Arlington Avenue, police said.
Police and firefighters responded there and discovered a vehicle on fire in the driveway of 101 N. Arlington Ave., police said.
Firefighters then quickly put out that blaze, police said.
"Both fires are suspicious and remain under investigation," police said in a release.
State police, Johnstown Police and the Fulton County Sheriff's Office assisted in both incidents.
