INVESTIGATOR: Suspect Identified In Beaufort County Arson Fires

Investigators who are looking into a string of arson fires in Beaufort County say they now have a suspect in those fires.

Captain Kenneth Watson with the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says while they have a suspect, they are not ready to release that person's name.

Since mid-February there have been 10 fires that authorities believe are connected in which abandoned homes, and two community centers have been targeted.

Watson says a fire today at an abandoned building off VOA Road was arson as well, but they do not believe this fire is connected to the others.
