If two fires overnight in Onancock turn out to be arson, that will bring to 60, the total number of arson fires in Accomack County since mid-November last year.
Firemen were first called to an abandoned structure on Savageville Road just after 11 p.m.; a short time later they got the call for another blaze on Mears Station and White’s Corner. No injuries were reported in either fire.
Those two blazes follow four arson fires over the weekend; two in Onancock, one in Withams and a fourth in Painter.
Virginia State Police are still offering a $25,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction. You can contact the VSP Tip Line at (757) 655-1437.
