Two More Arsons Likely in Fire-Plagued Western Pennsylvania City

August 18, 2009

Fiirefighters are investigating two more suspicious fires in vacant buildings in a western Pennsylvania city that has been plagued by more than 50 similar fires since last year.

Officials in New Castle says the first fire was reported about 2 a.m. Monday in a vacant commercial building. The second fire destroyed a vacant home a couple of miles away.

No injuries have been reported in the fires.

The fires appear to be suspicious, but have yet to be ruled arsons. The city has had more than 50 arsons in vacant buildings since January 2008.
