Possible serial arsonist strikes again in Southbridge

Posted: Updated:

Investigators said it looks like a serial arsonist in Southbridge has struck again.

Investigators are trying to figure out if a total of eight fires over the past three weeks were caused by the same person.

Investigators were called in just after 10:30 p.m. Friday. Three homes were set fire in the same neighborhood. No injuries were reported.

Officials are investigating whether the recent string of fires are connected to five more that happened between April 12 and April 13 where five fires damaged three homes.

Officials can confirm that the fires have all been set fairly quickly around the same time and within the same neighborhood.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Southbridge Police Department at (508) 764-5420.

There is a $5 thousand reward for anyone that can give police information that would lead to an arrest.
