COLCHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) - A Colchester woman put out a fire that police are calling suspicious.

Late Sunday night, emergency crews were called to three fires in Fort Ethan Allen. Two were in the area of Dalton Drive and the third was nearby on University Lane. That one was a baby carriage burning outside of an entry foyer in front of an apartment building.

A neighbor awoke to the sounds of smoke alarms and was able to help quell the flames.

“I ran out my front door and I saw this engulfed in flames, so I ran back in, grabbed my fire extinguisher. I extinguished it and we put the stroller that was in fire in the snow and put out the fire,” said Sarah Booska of Colchester.

Officials say no one was injured in any of those fires.

Police are asking anyone to report suspicious behavior and call 1-800-32-ARSON if you have information about those fires.
