February 2, 2013

OLNEY, Va. (AP) - Another arson fire on Virginia's Eastern Shore is under investigation.

Virginia State Police say the latest fire damaged an airplane hangar in Olney on Friday night.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that officials say no one was inside the hangar at the time of the fire.

More than 40 arsons have been reported in Accomack County since Nov. 13, 2012.

No one has been injured and all the structures have been abandoned.

Investigators believe most cases are the work of the same person.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
