UPDATE (4:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25): The Charleston Fire Department says they believe the fire in Charleston that burned three houses is arson.
Fire crews on the scene say the fire started in a middle, abandoned structure and then went to the surrounding houses.
Since it’s an abandoned house with no electricity or gas, they suspect arson, the Charleston Fire Department says.
A woman was in the occupied structure but made it out with no injuries.
This isn’t the first time the middle structure has caught on fire: once on Oct. 16, and once in 2022. This structure will be knocked down on Wednesday.
