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.

If you spend any time in this beautiful place, you can’t help but to be moved by its splendor and solitude. The fire risk is serious at any time if year, and we must all take a zero tolerance approach to anything that would jeopardize the nearby homes, people, wildlife, and habitat with fire, either intentional or careless.
I hate to think someone could have set these deliberately. It’s very troubling and the Sandy Police and fire departments need your help to find out what happened. Call 801-799-3000 to report any tips.”
