The flames were located near the railroad tracks igniting suspicions of brush fires caused by a passing train given the dry conditions of vegetation along the tracks.

Firefighters on the scene would not confirm the start of the fires, as the scene remains under investigation.

As of 3:30 p.m., all fires appeared under control.
