WHITE SWAN, Wash.-- There was another fire set last night in White Swan, and investigators believe this one is arson too.
So far, they've had four arsons in the past six days, a pretty startling number for any community.
So some people in the Lower Valley town are taking their safety into their own hands.
"It's just really getting out of hand and dangerous for the children that's in our neighborhood," said Leonard Cartmell, White Swan resident.
Leonard Cartmell and Sharleen Hubbard live in White Swan, about a half a block from the latest arson, and they're scared that an abandoned house next door could be next.
"Now we're worried that this is the next one on the block. All of these have happened within a block of each other in the last three nights, four nights," said Hubbard.
So, they're taking matters into their own hands, tearing down the house. Getting rid of a target that puts Sharleen's home in danger.
"We had asked if we could tear it down. We were just going to take some of the material and then just get rid of it because now we're concerned about safety," said Hubbard.
And there's not much for law enforcement to go off of either. Several reports say kids were seen leaving the area but without a good description, the Yakima County Sheriff's Office says it's a tough crime to solve.
"That information, while a little bit instructive, isn't necessarily helpful in identifying the suspects," said Detective Stew Graham with YSO.
So while the fire bug is still on the loose in White Swan, Leonard and Sharleen say they'll keep a close eye on the neighborhood, but they wonder what could be next.
"What if they get bored with burning down houses that are abandoned and start with family homes," said Cartmell.
The Yakima County Sheriff's Office is working with fire investigators and Yakama Nation Tribal Police to solve these crimes.
Anyone with information is urged to contact them.
