Floyd Co. town suffers fifth fire in recent days
A fifth fire in Lancer in recent months has residents concerned. Prestonsburg Fire Department crews responded to the fire late Friday night. The home was empty at the time with no one living in the house and was also without electricity.
The five fires have all taken place in a four block area. Though it was not clear if arson played a part in any of the five fires, officials have not ruled out arson as the cause of the blaze. One of the recent fires involved the home of the Prestonsburg Fire Chief.
