Thursday Night Fire Reported in Accomack County

Posted: Updated:

HALLWOOD, Va.– Virginia State Police are investigating yet another fire in Accomack County.

Police said that at around 8:50 p.m. Thursday, they received a call about a building fire on the 12000 block of Mears Station Road in Hallwood. There was very minimal damage to the back of the building with only a small portion of the siding being damaged by the fire, according to police. There were no reported injuries.

The fire is still under criminal investigation.

Just before this most recent fire, the Accomack County Sheriff's Office increased the reward related to the Accomack County arsons.  Anyone who comes forward with information leading to the arrest and conviction could get a reward up to $25,000.

Troopers said that as of Thursday, there have been 49 intentionally set fires in Accomack County.

Police said that on Wednesday, someone tried burning down the Leatherbury United Methodist Church in Onancock. The church sustained only minor damage.

To date, no one has been hurt in these incidents.

Based on evidence collected from the scenes, police are confident the arsons are the work of several people. 

A tip line has been established  for information about those responsible.  You can text, call, or e-mail tips to (757) 655-1437.

The Sheriff's Office is hopeful the increased reward money will bring more people forward with information about the case.
