Fire investigators say two early morning fires Friday in Centralia were arsons.

Riverside Fire Authority Chief Jim Walkowski told The Chronicle ( fires were set within 10 minutes of each other in materials outside both a Church of the Nazarene and the Centerville Western Store.

Investigators have no suspects.

They were the second and third fires of the morning in Centralia and Chehalis. An earlier fire at an espresso stand was accidentally started by a cigarette in a garbage can. The fourth fire at Calvary Chapel apparently was caused by an electrical problem in a switchbox.
