BEND, Ore. -

Bend police say they suspect somebody set fire to a park, an apartment complex garbage bin and pickup truck early Friday, but the flames were quickly extinguished.

Sgt. Dan Ritchie says the fires were in the same area on the city's east side between 2:30 a.m. and about 5 a.m.

A bonfire at a park spread into trees, but firefighters put it out.

A police officer used an extinguisher to take care of the fire in the garbage bin. A sheriff's deputy did likewise with the fire in the bed of the truck, which wasn't damaged.
