Phoenix police are looking for the person responsible for torching two cars and a shed in a North Phoenix neighborhood last night.

The three blazes happened within hours of each other in near 28th Street and Shea Boulevard.

Police say the first car was torched while sitting in a driveway at the owner's home, and a string of fires throughout the neighborhood followed.

About an hour after the first car went up in flames, a shed down the street burned, followed by a truck, just hours later.

Nobody was hurt in the blazes, but naturally there was extensive property damage.

Police don't have a suspect at the moment, but an investigation is under way.
