Sandy Police investigate ‘suspicious fires’ in Dimple Dell Park
SANDY, Utah— Police are investigating after a series of fires started in Dimple Dell Park Wednesday.
Sandy Fire Chief Eric Larson said the first fire was called in at 1:56 p.m. and they received another call about a fire at 5:30 p.m.
There were three fires in all in different parts of Dimple Dell Park.
While no structures were threatened, the nature of the fires is “very suspicious” and the fires are under investigation.
Monica Zoltanski, Sandy City Mayor, made a post Monday, thanking firefighters and reminding the public that “fire season is every season.”
Her full post stated, “Last Wednesday, there were three suspicious fires in Dimple Dell between the dog park and 700 East. We’re fortunate for the incredible work of the Sandy City Fire Department officers who responded quickly and put them out. But it’s scary to see how much area burned, especially considering the ground was damp from fresh snow and rain the day before. Fire season is every season.
