Arson Investigations in Two Neighborhoods

Flames Fire

(Memphis)  Arson investigators with the Memphis Fire Department are looking into two fires that broke out early Wednesday morning.

The first one was in Frayser and started around 12:30 a.m. at a house in the 2100 block of Gayle Dr. near Overton Crossing and Frayser Blvd.

The house was vacant, but witnesses told firefighters that a family had been living there until earlier this week.

The second fire was in the Medical District near the Dixie Homes area, where a building in the 200 block of Decatur St. north of Poplar Ave. burned around 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Arson investigators were called in after firefighters discovered a gas can next to the building.

No one was injured in either fire.
