Officials are investigating what led to two fires on Brooks Street in Tampa.

Firefighters were called to a single-story home Thursday morning after someone reported smoke and fire coming from the rear portion.

The good news is that no one was inside at the time, and firefighters got it under control in less than 15 minutes.

However, officials say within a 24-hour period another neighboring home caught fire, and now investigators want to know if someone set it intentionally.

They believe one of the house fires was arson, and they're gathering more information Friday. The home are located in the 8400 block of Brooks Street.
