According to the Lexington Fire Department two homes were intentionally set on fire Monday.

Just after 6 a.m. fire fighters arrived on scene of Hollow Creek Drive for a house fire.

Crews say no one there living there at the time, but still had gas and electricity going to it.

They say the fire started in the front bedroom and that the large amount of damage inside makes them think the fire could have been burning for a while.

The road in front of the house was entirely covered in ice which made the blaze even harder to battle.

Around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon the Lexington Fire Department responded to a second house fire on Owsley Ave.

Officials say the house was up for sale and no one lived there. Heavy flames were visible when firefighters arrived on scene. No one was injured.

According to Joe Best PIO for the Lexington Fire Department tells ABC 36 that the two fires were intentionally set but are not believed to be connected.

Both fires are being investigated by the Lexington Fire Department. If you have any information please call 231-5672 or use arsontips@lexingtonky.gov .
