Records show the home at 857 Elmira Street, is the 30th arson fire in or near the Oakleigh District since 2009. Most of the fires have occurred in an eight block area.
Once again, investigators say they need someone to step forward with good information, before someone else is burned out, or killed.MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) Mobile Fire Investigators say two fires that were sparked on Elmira Street last week were intentional.
The first happened at 957 Elmira Street March 13. Officials say two neighboring homes sustained damage.
We talked to Lee Franks last week. His home was damaged. He said despite the fire being ruled arson, he's not going anywhere.
"I'm moving back in cause I'm not leaving here," Franks said. "I will be here watching my house, and a few of the others."
The second happened the morning of March 16, at a vacant home at 857 Elmira Street. Firefighters were able to put out the blaze before it caused too much damage.
"There is evidence recovered at the scene indicating it was deliberately set," said Steve Huffman with Mobile Fire Rescue.
Anyone with information about these fires is asked to call the Arson Hotline at 208-MFRD, the Bureau of Fire Prevention at 208-7484 or you can leave information on Twitter @arsontip.
