Salt Lick firefighters battled two back-to-back fires early Wednesday morning that they said appeared to be intentionally set.

Both were off U.S. 60, in Bath County.

Firefighters were first dispatched to a mobile home around 1:30 a.m.

When they arrived, they said the home was engulfed in flames.

The home was vacant and no one was hurt.

While responding to that fire, a firefighter spotted a second fire less than two miles away.

Firefighters said a two-story house was engulfed in flames.

That house was also vacant at the time and no one was hurt.

Sitting near that house, officials said they found an abandoned SUV with the keys still inside. They said it appeared that it had gotten stuck there.

Inside the vehicle, officials said there were some suspicious items, leading them to believe that the fire was intentionally set.

There were also gas cans found outside both fires.

The investigation is ongoing.
