ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - Officials are investigating 29 house fires since December that are all in the same Orangeburg Neighborhood.

Authorities are trying to figure out who's setting abandoned homes on fire in the Stilton Road area. One more burned on Sunday.

Some of the houses have been set on fire multiple times.

Officials say they're considering burning the remaining vacant houses to train Orangeburg firefighters.

"Ultimately we certainly want to catch the persons involved but we also want to if we can, eliminate some of the potential problem we have there now," said Chief Wendell Davis from the Orangeburg Department of Public Safety.

If you know anything that might help investigators catch those responsible, you're asked to call 1-888-CRIME-SC.
