Derby’s fire marshal thinks two brush fires that started about a half-mile apart on Route 34 Saturday could be linked to a spate of unsolved roadside arson fires dating back to 2012.

“This has been an ongoing issue for years now that there’s a section that goes from Stratford all the way up into Monroe that we keep having brush fires,” Hawks said.
