OAKLAND — Firefighters will be back in the Oakland Hills a day after putting out five separate brush fires that they have deemed suspicious.

Oakland Fire Battalion Chief Lisa Baker says crews on Wednesday will walk through trails where the fires occurred a day earlier.

Baker says about 100 firefighters from several local and state agencies put the blazes out in about an hour. No injuries or structural damage was reported.

The fires were in a wooded canyon area near several million dollar homes and close to the site of a massive fire in 1991 that killed 25 people and destroyed more than 3,000 homes.
