In the last two months, six vacant houses, barns or outbuildings have burned and fire officials are calling them “suspicious.”
“There’s no possible ignition source, other than the fires being intentionally set,” said Deputy Fire Marshal Calvin Crupper.
The fires have occurred throughout the county, from Crittenden to Corinth, and have been in late evening or early morning, usually on Friday or Saturday night.
“There doesn’t seem to be a pattern,” Crupper said. “They’ve been county-wide.”
