ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. -

Follow an investigation, police believe that the fire was set intentionally. This fire now joins a list of over sixty suspicious fires in Accomack County since November.

Many of the fires have taken place at abandoned building, and no injuries have been reported.

An award of $25,000 has been offered for information leading to an arrest.
