TOPEKA (KSNT) — Topeka firefighters were called to 2 garage fires early Tuesday morning.

Investigators believe the fire was set on purpose. The estimated damage loss is around $8,500.

The second garage fire was in the 400 block of NE Scotland Avenue. It’s not known if the two fires are connected to one another. 

Crews on the scene say several adjacent vehicles and structures sustained radiant heat damage as a result of the fire.
