PHILIPPI, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia fire marshals are investigating several arsons along State Route 57 in Barbour County.

The state Fire Marshal’s Office told media outlets that a fire destroyed an abandoned house on Oct. 6. An abandoned wood shop within a quarter mile of the house was set on fire on two separate occasions.

Witnesses reported seeing a man and a white sport utility vehicle at the house at the time of the fire.

A fire occurred at another house in the area on Thursday. The Fire Marshal’s Office says the owner reported hearing a loud boom and discovered that her front porch was on fire.
