Authorities in Big Spring are now investigating what could have caused 2 early morning fires.

According to Big Spring Fire investigators it happened early Tuesday morning a little after 2 a.m. in the 700 block of Creighton Street, and then just a little bit later, another fire was set just a little further down the block. Fire Marshal Carl Condray told NewsWest 9, authorities in Big Spring are now investigating what could have caused 2 early morning fires.

NewsWest 9 found thousands of dollars worth of damage on the 800 block of Creighton, including burnt furniture, a busted front door, and even bullet holes in the window. In addition, a car was damaged in what appeared to be another intentional fire.

The second home that was burned on Tuesday Morning was on the 700 block, just a few houses down the street. That one also had damage to the front door and windows. NewsWest 9 also discovered bullet holes all along the front of the house. The owner of the house said his car was also shot-up behind the home. Remnants of gasoline were also found at both houses.

Condray said it's a pretty bad situation for all of the families who live in the neighborhood, especially because there have also been other suspicious fires and even drive-by shootings. Luckily, he said, no one was injured in the fires.

Big Spring Authorities said if you know or have any information about who started the fires to please contact them. In the meantime, firefighters said they'll continue to work with police and the Howard County Sheriff to figure out as much information as they can.
