MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

The Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department responded to several brush fires on Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say they found the brush fires and a hay bale on fire at Agri Park Drive near the Apartments at Harpers Pointe just after 12:30 p.m.

The Fire Marshal's Office was called to investigate because officials say the fires appeared to be intentionally set.

Assistant Fire Marshal Tracy Summar says during the investigation, they also discovered a barn on Gresham Lane had been set on fire, but the fire was out when responders got to the scene.

Summar says two subjects of interest have been identified in connection to the fires and that charges are pending against them.
