ACCOMACK COUNTY (AP) -- Virginia State Police agents are investigating a barn fire on the Eastern Shore.

Investigators went to 26000 Nelsonia Road in the Town of Bloxom just before 6:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that if it is determined to be arson, the Monday night fire would be the 39th in Accomack County since Nov. 13.

No one has been injured and all the structures have been abandoned.

Investigators believe most cases are the work of the same arsonist. But they aren't ruling out the possibility that some may be the work of a copycat.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
