UPDATE 12/1/14 @ 2:30 p.m.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Fire investigators say they have a few persons of interest in an arson that destroyed two vacant homes in Huntington.

The houses are on 10th Street West between Madison and Monroe Avenues. The fire was reported about 6 p.m. Saturday. The fire began in one house, and then spread to the neighboring house.

Huntington Fire Chief Carl Eastham tells WSAZ, the houses are expected to be demolished and are on the Fire Marshals to do list.

“To get an emergency demolition done on especially the most northern house, it was damaged the most, it is very unsafe and they're going to try and bring it down. Both of them are completely unsafe and need to come down," said Eastham.
