PARKSLEY, Va.-Some Accomack County residents have set up Facebook pages to help inform people of locations and times of fires occurring throughout the community. According to Virginia State Police, the number of arsons is currently at 53.
Ellen Powell of Parksley said she and her friend Sheri Bradley started a page.
"It's mostly the facts," she said. "If you go through the page you see it's just a post of the arsons where they were, the times and not many suggestions as to people of Accomack County need to get together and go hunt him down."
For others, there are pages used to encourage law enforcement and firefighters to keep up the good work.
"The other pages- the one that was started in the beginning- had a lot of people that didn't show the appropriate appreciation, so I felt like they needed somewhere people could say they're doing a good job," said Connie Burford of Bloxom.
