(CBS/AP) ACCOMACK, Va. - Authorities said an abandoned home set on fire Thursday night is believed to be related to a string of arsons on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
The home in Painter was uninhabitable and overgrown with trees and thick brush, authorities said. More than 70 deliberately set fires have occurred on the Eastern Shore since November 2012. Most of the structures were abandoned. No injuries were reported.
The Virginian-Pilot reported that another fire Thursday night near the front steps of a home in Greenbackville was deliberately set but not related to the other arsons.
A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
