fires that have broken out here in the city of novato over night and a few that broke out the night before. we are at the end of columbine lane and this is a fire investigator with the novato fire department. he is gathering evidence with one of these crime scenes. one of six crime scenes they are looking into. you can see at the top of the hill some tape. that is where a small brush fire was set early this morning. he tells me it was about a quarter acre or so and quickly contained by firefighters. but there is a great deal of suspicious on the part of investigators. this they believe is one of six suspicious fires that was set early this morning. all of them broke out within the span of three hours. all of those fires are in the same neighborhood near 101 and highway 37. five of the fires burn the through the brush but one was set inside of a home. actually inside of a garage and it bushed a car there. and in that case the homeowner
6:05 am
noticed the fire, came down and tried to put it out himself. he suffered smoke inhalation in the process and had to be taken to the hospital. novato police lieutenant told me why investigators believe the fires are aspish -- are suspicious. >> the proximity of the fires and how close they were to each other and in addition to the time frame within three hours it was certainly something we are going to look into as far as you know mapping it and trying to collect evidence. >> reporter: now along with this six fires that broke out early this morning, there were also two suspicious fires that broke out over night wednesday night into early thursday morning and they are looking to see if those fires may be connected as well. they are trying to figure out if the same person is setting all of these fires. investigators are moving from location to location gathering evidence and searching for witnesses. obviously if anybody out there knows anything about the fires set early this morning, they should put in a call to police.
6:06 am
live in nova to alex savidge ktvu channel 2 news. novato is not the only bay area city dealing with suspected cases of arson. last night a brush fire started. it was at least the fourth suspicious fire in the neighborhood over the past two weeks. investigators believe they are connected. they are worried the incidents will become more serious because the fires are occurring more often and with less time between each fire. time is 6:06. we are also following developing news in san jose. police investigating a deadly over night shooting. janine de la vega is joining us live. we just talked to a man who said he heard those shots. >> reporter: yes, he was one of the people who heard the gunshots. this has just left him feeling very uneasy. right now behind me you see police are still here. they're about to wrap up their investigation at least out on the scene. but there is also a crime scene

6:08 am
and i hear a man and woman off in the distance yelling. like screaming. i can hear exactly what they are saying. >> reporter: at this point police have not released any sort of suspect information or description. we don't have the victim's identity yet but we are being told he is a latino man in his mid 20s. again, family does live in the neighborhood. we're not sure what led up to this. what the motive was. unsure if this is gang related. a lot of unanswered questions here. it does appear though that school will be opening up as normal because police have broken down the crime tape and the perimeter right now. just crime scene cleaners remain on the scene as well as police. we will continue to monitor the situation and try to give you updates. reporting live janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. time 6:08. meantime san jose police say they have arrested a suspect for another homicide last night. police were called to the home
