EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) – Two suspicious fires in East Liverpool early Thursday morning are under investigation.
A vacant Lee Street trailer and garage were destroyed, and Liverpool Township fire Chief Dave Ward believes a string of fires in the same neighborhood may be connected, according to the Morning Journal.
The fires at the trailer and garage were reported at 1:48 a.m. and appeared to be set at the same time. The trailer has been vacant for years, and its owner is incarcerated, the Morning Journal reports.
Firefighters also responded to a car fire on Dewey Avenue, which is nearby, at 11 p.m. Wednesday. That fire was also reportedly set deliberately.
