Four early Saturday morning fires that killed six horses are being investigated by West Metro Fire Rescue.

Three of the fires occurred within a block of each other, while the fourth burned about 1.5 miles away. 

Of the four suspicious fires, two were dumpster fires, one a barn fire and another a tire fire, according to information from West Metro.

The Lakewood Police Department, Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting West Metro in the investigation.
