Two fires in Somerville under investigation

A pair of two-alarm fires broke out early this morning about a mile apart in Somerville, causing significant damage and displacing at least two families, fire officials said.

The fires come after a rash of fires that have worried the community. Three house fires in recent months have been deemed arson, and three others are suspicious, city officials said Aug 19. A reward of up to $15,000 has been offered for information that leads to an arrest in connection with the fires.
