Grand Junction police are asking for the public's help to find who was behind a number of arson fires in the area over the weekend.

Authorities are investigating a total of 12 fires, eleven of them vehicle fires, that occurred early Sunday.

Police and fire officials say the eleven vehicles, plus a trash Dumpster, were set on fire sometime between 4 a.m. and shortly after 6 a.m.

No one was hurt, but damage was estimated at more than $20,000.

Fire department spokesman Mike Page says most of the fires started in vehicles that were unlocked, but that's about all the blazes had in common. Various models and makes of cars and trucks were targeted.

The blazes all broke out within about a one-mile radius of each other.

Anyone with information about the fires is asked to call Grand Junction police at 970-242-6707.
