Trailer, House Burn In Latest Suspected Arson in Accomack County

Mar 17, 2013 -- 11:30am

A trailer and a house have burned in the latest suspected arson in Accomack County, Virginia.

Virginia State Police say their Bureau of Criminal Investigations received a 9-1-1 call around 1:40 this morning for two fires on John Caine Road in Parksley. When police and firefighters arrived, they determined that it was two structures that were burning from one fire that spread. Police say a single-wide trailer appears to have been the target of an arson, and the flames then spread to a wooden house that was about 50 yards away. No injuries were reported. If this fire is confirmed as arson, it would be number 70 since the middle of November.

Virginia State Police are still offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest or the person or people who've been setting the fires in Accomack County.
