(CBS/AP) OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine - The Maine fire marshal's office is investigating a string of eight small fires reported early Tuesday morning in the coastal resort town of Old Orchard Beach.
Officials tell CBS affiliate WGME that a local cafe was damaged when items on the porch burned and a window shattered, and that at least four fires were put out in the dune grass along the beach. The station said another fire was set in a trash can, another between two cabins and yet another near a building under construction.
A fire official called the blazes an "odd situation" but stopped short of calling them arson fires.
Firefighters extinguished all the blazes. No injuries were reported.
