RIPLEY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Three fires in three weeks have fire crews in Naylor, Missouri looking for answers.

According to Police Chief Grady Coble the most recent fire happened Friday night at a vacant home on the corner of Pine and Cleveland Streets.

It's considered a total loss.

The fire marshal was on the scene investigating on Saturday.

The same situation happened last week at a trailer on South Front Street.

That vacant home was also a total loss.

The two homes did not have working utilities, according to Chief Coble.

Then a fire three weeks ago downtown, once considered accidental is now being looked into.

That fire also damaged a garage, took vinyl off of the post office and damaged a church steeple.

The fire marshal's investigating, and authorities say they do have a person of interest.
