This was the third fire in three days. Fire fighters and other emergency personel, along with police and investigators, were busy on Drummondtown Road in Wachapreague on Saturday evening.
Sunday evening another fire in an abandonded structure kept units busy also. These two fires have also been classified as arson.
Monday night's fire is the second fire set in an abandoned building in eight days to be set in the Saxis Road area. On February 17, 2013 fire was set to an abandoned dwelling in the 29000 block of the same road.
No injuries within the fire and emergency departements have been reported and it must be said that these brave men and women are doing a remarkable job in protecting properties and lives when they are called on at a moments notice. They are volunteers that Accomack County residents can be proud of.
These have been trying times for the residents of Accomack County and I don't suppose any people know that better than the families of the fire/emt/emergency personel, Accomack County Sheriff's Office, the Virginia State Police and all the investigators who have been anxiously seeking an answer to the fires that have plaqued Accomack County since November 12, 2012.
Monday nights fire brings the total of arson to 53.
A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this or any other of the more than 50 arson fires reported since November 13, 2012.
