Three suspicious fires remain under investigation near Dublin, according to the Bladen County Fire Marshal’s Office.

“We’ve got some persons of interest,” said Bladen County Fire Marshal Kenneth Clark.

The first suspicious fire occurred when an unoccupied home on NC 410 burned near West Bladen High School on Tuesday, February 5th, and a second suspicious fire claimed a mobile home on Friday morning, February 8th. Both homes were empty and had no insurance at the time of the fires.

A third suspicious fire occurred early on Thursday, March 14th. This fire claimed yet another vacant building.

Clark said, right now, the suspicious fires are occurring in a section of roadway along NC 41 West near Bladen Community College. He added investigators are working diligently to gather as much evidence as possible and they do have persons of interest.

“We’re doing surveillance of the area,” said Clark.

If anyone has noticed anything suspicious or unusual activity along NC 41 West in the Dublin area to contact the Bladen County Fire Marshal’s Office at 910-862-6755.
