The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating three vehicle fires that happened at about the same time Saturday night in El Sobrante and Richmond. Deputies were dispatched to a fire in front of a home in the 5500 block of Oak Knoll Road in the unincorporated city of El Sobrante at about 10:50 p.m., sheriff’s office spokesman Jimmy Lee said today. Firefighters from the Contra Costa County Fire Department were there when deputies arrived and they had already extinguished the fire.
At about the same time, firefighters from the department handled two other blazes nearby in Richmond, he said.  A neighborhood canvas was conducted to find possible suspects or witnesses.  Earlier in the week, investigators were looking for a man who set at least 10 cars on fire Wednesday in Richmond and in the El Sobrante area.  Lee said today that they cannot confirm the fires are linked, although it is possible. No suspects have been located.  An investigation into the string of vehicle fires is ongoing.
