UPDATE: Authorities Working New Leads In Serial Arson Case

Posted: Updated:

ACCOMACK CO., Va. - Investigators say that they feel that they have some promising leads in the apparent serial arson case in Accomack County. Since November 13th, a total of 20 abandoned structures have been destroyed. No one has been injured as a result.

The fires have been all over Accomack County including Melfa, Parksley and Oak Hall. The structures have been abandoned houses, barns, and even a chicken coop.

The investigators say that they think the person or people setting the fires, are residents of Accomack County. They say the person would be coming and going at strange hours, they may be acting unusual, and will show a heightened interest in the fires by watching the coverage of them and turning conversations to speak about them.

Authorities are still looking for information from the public. Calls can be directed to the Virginia State Police Chesapeake Headquarters at 1-800-582-8350 or 757-424-6820, or the Accomack County Sheriff's Office at 757-787-1131. A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
