Kinston firefighters are investigating two house fires and one storage shed fire.
All three happened within a two mile radius from each other and only a few hours apart Wednesday morning.
The first fire happened on East Shine Street around 2 AM in Kinston.
Fire officials arrived and found a storage shed completely engulfed in flames. Now that shed is charred and everything inside burnt.
The next fire was about a mile away. It happened on East Gordon Street at an abandoned home.
Then another fire happened around 8 AM also on East Gordon Street. Now neighbors are asking is there an arsonist on the loose?
Fire officials have not yet said whether they believe the fires are connected or whether they were intentionally lit.
