Fire officials in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta are investigating three blazes at nearby businesses.

Authorities say those fires broke out around 1 a.m. Monday in the 500 block of Powder Springs Street. Fire officials say they were still at the scene when another fire broke out around 4 a.m. at an auto repair shop about a block away.

It was not immediately clear whether the fires were related, or what caused them.
