Eighth dumpster fire in a month near Malabu Drive

Fire trucks are becoming a common sight on Malabu Drive after the area saw its eighth dumpster fire of the past month Tuesday morning.
Brookhaven Apartments, the same complex that suffered a dumpster fire last week, was hit around 1 a.m.
Firefighters said the flames were put out quickly.
Within one weekend in January, fire crews responded to four fires in the area between West Lowry Lane and Malabu Drive. Both are side streets off of Nicholasville Road. Two weeks after the initial fires, crews responded to three more within a short period of time.
Investigators said one similarity between the fires is they are all near apartment complexes or businesses. However, they are not sure if they are related. They said some of them appear suspicious.
Lexington police are increasing patrols in the area to keep an eye out.
