Investigation into string of fires on Jefferson Ave.

Authorities are investigating a string of fires in the 1400 block of Jefferson.

Two fires broke out Wednesday morning, one in an abandoned house and the other in an abandoned apartment building.

Fire officials were able to quickly extinguish the flames.

In the past 24 hours, five fires have broken out in the same block.

Authorities believe the three previous blazes were intentionally set, and they're looking into whether the latest two fires are a result of arson.

Authorities are asking anyone with information on these fires to call CrimeStoppers (901) 528-CASH.
