Parksley Brush Fire Saturday Possibly Arson

Mar 17, 2013 -- 8:07am

A brush fire that broke out early Saturday morning in Parksley, Virginia is being investigated as arson.

Virginia State Police say the fire broke out just after 12:40 Saturday morning near the intersection of Dennis Drive and County Road. No one was injured, but police and firefighters say the fire appears to have been intentionally set. If that is confirmed, it would be the 69th arson in Accomack County since mid-November.

Virginia State Police are still offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or people responsible for setting the fires.
