UNIONTOWN, AL (WSFA) -

A suspected arsonist is on the run in Uniontown. That's according to the locals who say there is no reason why three homes were burned within two weeks.

What's left of a two-story mansion still smolders one day after it burned to the ground Sunday morning. Just a few blocks away, another big house burned and a much smaller home burned but not all the way to the ground.

"It could be your home next. You don't know whose house might be next," said resident Tonetta Hill.

Hill has no idea what to make of all this.

"It's frightening because we don't know what's going on, the motives, how it's starting or who is starting it.. we just know that several people lost their homes," she said.

The mayor of Uniontown was not available, the fire chief was out of town. The state fire marshal is investigating the fires but hasn't released any other details for now. Two of the three homes were vacant. The owner of one home is reportedly out of the country.

"To happen more than once, it's very unusual," Hill said.

Three fires in a week-and-a-half, three investigations by the state are underway to determine who and why.

There were no reported injuries in the fires.
