Authorities are investigating two fires that started at the same apartment complex Tuesday. The fires were reported at 4701 Briarpark Drive, near 48th and Highway 2. The first fire was called in around 8:30 a.m., the other around 10:15 a.m. Both fires were on decks. No injuries were reported in either fire. Residents told Channel 8 Eyewitness News this isn't the first time fires like this have started at the complex. Loretta Schuester, who lives in a unit above where one fire started, said the fires are suspicious. "They're just little cigarette fires that all they're doing is the outside of the board," Schuester said. "It's scary and stuff. I live on the third floor. I'm disabled; I just had surgery on my ankle. I can't get up and down the stairs that great." Schuester said LFR asked residents to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity.
