Police are stepping up patrols and asking neighbors to be on the lookout for anything suspicious, after a fifth small fire broke out near an Antioch park in the past two weeks.

The latest one burned about a-quarter of an acre on Yorkshire Drive in Country Manor Park about 7:30 Thursday night. Another fire broke out about three hours earlier. A fire last Friday became dangerously close to some homes.

Officials have no detailed suspect information. But, some witnesses did report some kids running away from a fire last week.
