Fatal overnight fire; Crews find body inside house

An early morning house fire turned deadly. Just before 3am this morning...Memphis fire crews were called to a house fire in the 2300 block of Enterprise near Park Avenue. After the flames were doused they found a body inside. Officials are not releasing any details at this time. We'll have more information on this fatal fire, as soon as it becomes available. Also new this morning... Memphis fire officials say an arsonist is to blame for EIGHT fires in two days in the same neighborhood. Crews responded to a vacant house fire last night on Driver Street in South Memphis.. When firefighters arrived, the house was fully engulfed. No one was injured in that fire. But, officials say this wasn't the first time they've been to this address. They say this same house had been set fire on Sunday. Investigators are still looking for the suspected arsonist. Last night's fires were similar to two others just two weeks ago at Orphanage and Ayers. That's where early on the morning of Friday, August 12th, crews battled not one, but two vacant house fires. Officials say fires like these are not only a nuisance they're a danger. That's because they take crews away from other possible emergencies.
