Authorities investigating dozens of wildfires

MERIDIAN — Authorities are trying to determine what caused dozens of grass and brush fires this week in and around Meridian.

Firefighters fought the fires yesterday afternoon. Smoke was heavy at times and a Meridian Police Department unit and a Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department deputy were called to the areas for traffic control.

The Meridian Star reported that authorities did not immediately know what started the fires.
