Police Probing Fire on Va.'s Eastern Shore

December 25, 2012

ACCOMAC, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police agents are investigating a barn fire on Virginia's Eastern Shore.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that if it is determined to be arson, the Monday night fire would be the 39th in Accomack County since Nov. 13.

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

Investigators believe most cases are the work of the same arsonist. But they aren't ruling out the possibility that some may be the work of a copycat.

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