Carolina Beach may have an arsonist at work. Police said two fires broke out in less than 24 hours in a building along the Carolina Beach Boardwalk.

The first fire occurred around 7:00 Tuesday morning. The second happened just after 4:00 Tuesday afternoon.

The building is under construction and was vacant at the time.

Investigators said both fires look very suspicious, and they are looking for leads as who may have started them. “We hope to put an end to it tonight. I don’t know if any arrests will be made as of yet, but we are going to identify all the players involved,” said Sgt. Harry Humphries of the Carolina Beach Police Department.

Police sealed off the building Tuesday as investigators worked the scene.
