Const. Lorraine Edwards told Global News the first of the fires happened around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday on Cochrane Road in the east end.
Officers were then called out to assist Hamilton firefighters at 3:08 a.m. as another tow truck burned in a parking lot at Garth Street, just southwest of the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway.
A third fire was reported at 3:29 a.m. at Ferguson Avenue and Hunter Street East, police say.
Police are considering all of the fires suspicious, but investigators could not confirm whether they were related.
The police investigation is ongoing.
