The second fire was 48 hours later at a house just three doors down from the car fire.  Someone set fire to a futon-style bed outside a house. That fire spread to part of the house. The 86 year-old resident managed to escape.

The third fire was early Friday morning at another house on Palmetto, with a physical address on North Harold Avenue.  It was a trash can set on fire there.
