Arson Suspected in Medford Fires
Authorities are investigating a string of arson fires set in the Medford area on Wednesday.
Fire officials report the flames scorched the side of a vacant home, dry grass and a fence before crews had the blaze under control. Flames were reported at 6:15 Wednesday evening behind West Main Street.
Officials with the Medford Police Department suspect the fire was set by the same person who lit four others early Wednesday morning. However, the cause remains under investigation. Officials say all of the blazes were extinguished before any serious damage was sustained.
Anyone with information regarding these fires is urged to contact Medford Police at 774-2230.
