LEBANON, Mo.-- Investigators say a series of brush fires in a southwest Missouri county may have been intentionally set.
Four fires broke out in Laclede County on Thursday afternoon.
All four were just a few miles apart from each other in a rural area, just southwest of Lebanon.
Authorities say they're considering them suspicious because of their proximity to each other.
More than 65 firefighters from 17 agencies responded to the blazes.
One injury has been reported. A woman who tried to help wound up needing help herself. Authorities said the woman was flown to a Springfield hospital for injuries caused by the heat and an existing medical condition.
