JACKSON — The top arson investigator in the Jackson Fire Department says three abandoned houses on one street have burned over the past two weeks.

Greg Travis says arson is likely — and another fire in October on that street may also have been arson.

Police don't have a suspect.

Travis says that one of the houses where a fire was set in November had also burned about five years ago.

The Jackson City Council recently discussed blight and burned-out houses in the neighborhood but did not find a way to immediately deal with the problem.
