State Fire Marshals say two fires that broke out within hours of each other Tuesday morning in Huntington were no accident.
The first fire was reported around 1:30am at a home in the 700 block of West 22nd Street. Then three hours later, firefighters responded to this duplex on Division Street. Residents inside both structures made it out safely.
These latest fires raise the total number of arsons to 45 since late last year.
The State Fire Marshal is investigating two separate fires that happened early Tuesday morning in Huntington.
The first one started in the 700 block of West 22nd Street between Madison and Jefferson Avenues around 1:30am.
Everyone was able to make it out safely. Firefighters say it appears this fire started outside the home.
A few hours later firefighters were called to another fire on the other end of Huntington. Firefighters say this duplex on Division Street caught fire just after 4:30am Tuesday.
People that lived on one side of the duplex got out safely and there wasn't anyone home on the other side.
Firefighters got to the scene and knocked it down pretty quickly.
They say that it started in a back room of the house and don't know if it was electrical or arson.
