The above map shows where the five fires were lit and when. Each occurred within a 45-minute driving distance from the others, and they all happened on a Friday or Saturday.

Fire officials say the latest happened around 4:15 p.m. Friday at the former Golden Eagle Motel on Route 9, which has been abandoned for several years.

No one was inside, and no one got hurt.

They believe a person caused the fire, but the investigation is ongoing to confirm.

The first suspected arson burned a Putney home to the ground. The second, a week later, also in Putney, destroyed an auto shop.

State Police are offering a $5,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to an arrest.
