A vehicle malfunction is being investigated as the cause of four fires in Calaveras County yesterday afternoon.  Cal Fire, Calaveras Consolidated Firefighters & Linden-Peters fire responded to the series of vegetation fires along the Highway 26 corridor in the Jenny Lind area.  While the fires are under investigation, CalFire says it appears they were started from a faulty catalytic converter on the same vehicle.  The largest of the four fires was over two acres.  If anyone may have witnessed anything unusual while following a vehicle along Highway 26 yesterday, such has sparks or hot metal pieces coming from the vehicle, please contact the Cal-Fire San Andreas office.
