Police and fire investigators suspect arson in three vacant homes that caught fire within 30 minutes of one another in New Castle.

The first fire was reported about 11 p.m. Thursday. As fire crews battled it, a second call came for a house six blocks away. The third house was located about six blocks from the second fire.

The third fire was at a home damaged last year when someone set fire to a vacant home next door. Last year's fire was one of 12 that city officials determined were intentionally set. An investigation led to arrests.

Nobody was hurt in any of Thursday night's fires.
