ONANCOCK, Va. (AP) - Authorities are investigating two more suspicious fires on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
Virginia State Police tell media outlets that the fires damaged two abandoned structures. Both are being investigated as arson.
The first fire occurred at a house in Onancock shortly before 10:20 p.m. Monday.
The crew of a state police aircraft spotted the second fire at a two-story building about an hour later in Mears.
More than 50 fires have been reported in Accomack County since Nov. 13, 2012.
No one has been injured. Many of the structures have been abandoned.
A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
