NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - Police and fire investigators say a string of fires in Norwich recently appear to be arson and are looking for the person or people responsible.

The latest blaze occurred Monday night at the former YMCA building on Main Street. That came a day after a fire vacant mill building on Franklin Street. Fire officials say both buildings are vacant and had no power, making the blazes suspicious.

The department also is looking at a mattress fire on East Main Street in the same general area.

No injuries were reported in any of the fires.

A fire at a co-work space on Franklin Street, however, has been determined to be accidental.

City Manager John Salomone says officials are asking owners of vacant buildings to secure their properties.
