Three adjacent houses caught fire at the same time Tuesday, leading Birmingham investigators to check into the possibility of arson.
The fires happened just before 11:00am CT at 925 52nd Place North.
That's near the Airport Highway exit off I-20/59.
The three homes are close to each other on the street.
One house was burned to the ground, and the other two had fire damage.
Fire crews were still putting out hot spots, two hours after the initial call.
A police spokesperson says they are not sure if these are arson fires, but they will look into it.
Another house fire happened two blocks from there about an hour earlier, and that fire is suspected to be arson.
