LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Investigators with the Bureau of Land Management are currently investigating the recent fires at Clark County Wetlands Park.

Assistant Fire Chief Larry Haydu with Clark County Fire Department says that it appears suspicious in nature only because most wildland fires are usually caused by lightning and people and there wasn’t any lightning on either night of the fires.
