Posted: Updated:

VIRGINIA - Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigators tell WMDT they responded to three fires on the Eastern Shore late Monday night and early Tuesday morning. There were no reported injuries in these fires.
 
You'll recall WMDT reported on two fires that occurred late Monday night. Virginia State Police say both of the blazes have been ruled as arsons, bringing the total number to 48.

According to police, the first blaze occurred around 9:20 p.m. on the 19000 block of Quinby Bridge Road in Quinby. Police say the structure was a two story, abandoned dwelling that had fire damage to the rear.

The second of the suspected arsons was reportedly on the 21000 block of Fair Oaks Road in Melfa. Police say it was reported around 9:35 p.m. Investigators say this fire burned the dwelling to the ground.

 Police say the third blaze was reported around 1:50 a.m. Tuesday morning on the 12000 block of Houston Street in Exmore. Reports say the structure is a single story, unoccupied dwelling and suffered interior fire damage.

Currently all arson cases are still under criminal investigation.

Virginia State Police ask you to call them if you have any information on the investigation. There is still a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the arsonist(s).
