NOVATO (KCBS) – Authorities were searching for at least one person – if not more – believed responsible for lighting fires in grassy areas of Novato since the weekend.

Police said they were beefing up their efforts to catch anyone involved, following this series of small arson blazes, numbering about 55 as of Monday evening.

Arson investigators determined that some of the small fires set had burned together into several larger fires at Redwood Blvd. and Sequoia Glen Lane, described as a residential area dotted with low-rise condos.
