Three Overnight Beaufort County Fires Under Investigation

Deputies are investigating three fires overnight in Beaufort County.

Sheriff's Captain Kenneth Watson says Sunday night there was a marsh fire off Hwy 264 near Terra Ceia Rd. A second fire this morning at an abandoned barn happened on Possum Hill Road and the last at an abandoned building on Peoples Road in Bath.

Investigators say they are confident that the three fires are likely related.

Last week a former Kinston police officer was charged with setting seven fires in Beaufort and Washington counties, but authorities say they believe someone else is responsible for starting several other fires in the county.
