The Enfield Police Department is investigating a Saturday morning house fire in which arson is suspected by both fire and law enforcement officials.
Enfield police Captain Chuck Hasty said the fire is believed to be related to an earlier blaze where rags were found burning on the guide wire of a utility pole at West Alsop and McWiggan streets.
Hasty said the call to the guide wire fire was received around 1:30 that morning while the house fire call was received around 2:45 a.m.
Enfield police and the fire department responded to the house fire in the 300 block of Nash Street.
The front of the structure was ablaze and the fire department had it extinguished within 10 minutes of arrival.
Hasty said the house sustained substantial damage. The house was unoccupied.
One witness description of the suspects is five younger males driving a dark colored vehicle.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Lieutenant Willie Murphy at 252-445-5122 or Halifax County Crimestoppers 252-583-4444.
