TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Multiple house fires have been sparking overnight in east Toledo over the past two weeks.

A vacant home on 5th Street even caught on fire twice. A fire broke out before midnight Saturday.

A two-story house on Navarre Avenue caught fire around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Firefighters say the house has only been vacant for a week.

Investigators are also looking into another suspicious fire that happened to a vacant home in the 500 block of Spring Grove Jan. 21 around 5:30 a.m. According to a neighbor, the house has been vacant for a few months and was actually up for sale. 

Toledo fire crews battled a blaze at a vacant apartment building on 5th Street twice in one night. The first fire was called in around 8:30 p.m. Jan. 13, and crews worked until after 11 p.m. to extinguish the flames. The second fire was then called in around 2:30 a.m. Jan. 14, and crews worked through the morning to put out the blaze.

The causes of these fires are under investigation, but fire investigators believe it could be arson.

Toledo News Now's Crystal Clark will tell you who neighbors believe is behind the blazes and why they say they have had enough tonight on Fox Toledo News at 6:30.
