ACCOMACK COUNTY - Another abandoned building in Accomack County went up in flames overnight.

Firefighters responded to Metompkin Road in Nelsonia around 1:00 a.m. and found a shed on fire. Va. State Police arson investigators say the building was overgrown with trees.

There have been more than 70 intentionally-set fires in the county since mid-November 2012. Investigators believe most were set by the same person or group of people, but they say some were started by copycats.

Tips can be made by calling the arson hotline at 757-655-1437. There's a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

The county has more than 600 abandoned structures.

Two days ago, fire destroyed an abandoned house on Bullbeggar Road. That was ruled arson as well.
