Officials are hoping to interview Rachel Bridges about the blazes they call “suspicious.” She’s Caucasian, five-foot-five and 110 pounds.

The first fire ignited Monday and a second fire started Tuesday morning, prompting evacuations in the Doney Park area east of Flagstaff. Evacuations have since been lifted.

Officials say structures were damaged and the fire is estimated at about two acres. Anyone with information about the fires or Bridges is asked to contact the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office at (928) 774-4523 or Silent Witness at (928) 774-6111.
