HALLWOOD, Va. (AP) - The authorities are investigating another fire on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
The Virginian Pilot (http://bit.ly/VVl9fZ ) reports that the fire was reported Thursday night in Hallwood. No one was injured in the structure fire, which was described as minor.
Investigators have not said whether the fire is linked to the nearly 50 that have been set since November.
The Hallwood fire occurred hours after Virginia State Police announced that a reward of $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the string of arsons. That's up from the previous bounty of $5,000.
