Fire investigators are trying to figure out if arson is to blame for two early morning fire calls in central Edmonton Monday.

Both fires started minutes apart as garage fires on 95th and 97th Streets around 109th Avenue, but the second spread to the deck of the house.

Residents were evacuated from nearby homes but nobody was hurt in either fire.
