Skokie fire crews battled two back-to-back blazes three blocks from each other overnight.

In the first fire in the 8500-block of Keeler, flames went up in the front of a mansion. The second fire involved a vehicle and detached garage area in the 8200-block of Keeler.

"We have concern and obviously being suspicious in nature, therefore we are doing those investigations," a Skokie official said.

The state fire marshal was on the scene of the fire.
