Investigators are seeking information after several vacant properties caught fire in Scioto County.
The Division of the State Fire Marshal believe two fires at vacant buildings may be connected and are considered arson. About noon Friday, a barn was set on fire at 2695 State Route 73 in Rarden and about 6:30 a.m. Sunday a vacant trailer caught fire in the 7100 block of State Route 73 in Otway, according to a news release from the fire marshal's office.
The fire marshal's office has investigated several other vacant property fires within Scioto County and believes they could be related. A vacant house fire on Saturday at 7175 State Route 104 in McDermott is still being investigated.
Anyone with information on any of the fires are asked to call the fire marshal's office 800-589-2728.
