The latest in a string of arsons was ignited on Thursday morning when a vacant house in east Charlotte went up in flames. Fire was shooting through the roof when firefighters arrived at Paul Buck Boulevard, causing at least $100,000 in damage. Officials said one firefighter was hurt, but will be okay. Thursday’s incident was the most recent of at least four intentionally set fires across the city. On Sept. 16, firefighters said someone started a fire on Anderson Street, just off the Plaza. It also did $100,000 in damage. Back on Sept. 2, two fires, one at a real estate office on Park Drive and another on Linda Lake Court, were also deemed intentional. Police later arrested a man in connection with the Park Drive fire.
