HOWE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana State Police are investigating three separate fires they believe were intentionally set in rural northeastern Indiana.

Detective David Poe said in a Monday news release that all three fires are “suspicious in nature” and likely set intentionally.

The fires were set on a property in rural Howe in LaGrange County. A barn burned down on Feb. 17 and authorities couldn’t determine the cause. On May 15, a shed was destroyed by fire. A fire was reported Aug. 6 at another building.

State Police in Fort Wayne are asking for the public’s help and seeking tips, including anonymous phone calls.
