ACCOMAC, Va. (AP) - Two more suspicious fires have been reported on Virginia's Eastern Shore.

Virginia State Police tell media outlets that a fire damaged a storage shed Sunday in Accomack County. A brush and fire tire occurred about 11 miles away.

Arson is suspected in both fires.

More than three dozen arsons have been reported 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 person. 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.
