String of arsons burn vacant White Swan buildings
Since May 2, fires were set in two vacant homes and an abandoned hotel and abandoned hardware store.
Yakima County Fire District 5 Deputy Chief Kevin Frazier told the Yakima Herald-Republic that the fires may have been set by teens who were kicked out of the empty buildings or by a neighbor tired of the teens congregating.
Neighbors have been dismantling another vacant home to prevent it from becoming the next arson target.
