Fireworks May Have Sparked Lexington Fire

Lexington Fire Department investigators continue to look into the cause of two fires in vacant houses early Thursday morning.

Investigators say a blaze on Valley Farm Drive in the Winburn subdivision was likely caused by electrical problems.

Fire department officials say they have not ruled out fireworks as the cause of a fire on Eddie Street near downtown.

"The fire could have been the result of some fireworks that were discharged last night, or number two, the fire may have been intentionally set," Lexington Fire Department Major Mark Blankenship said Thursday.

Firefighters found spent fireworks around the house, but they have not officially determined the cause of the fire.
