Fire investigators are looking into two car fires that sparked early Monday morning.

Both cars caught fire around 2 a.m. Monday, less than three miles apart.

Flames leaped from a Chevy Malibu in a driveway on Collier Street. The right side of the car was completely burned.

The cover to the gas tank was open. Investigators are calling the fire suspicious.

A few miles away, firefighters battled more flames inside a car in an alleyway near the intersection of Durham Avenue and Steele Street.  The car was damaged beyond recognition.
