CHAMPAIGN -- It's no secret the fire department has been working overtime. Eight fires have broken out just this month. Authorities are concerned it could be a trend, but they say it's just too early to tell if they're all connected.

Three fires are currently being investigated as arson. They happened in the 100-block of East John, 1600-block of West University, and most recently, the 200-block of William Street.

Fire officials are working closely with police. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
