A trailer on a construction site in Ybor City and a home in Belmont Heights were damaged early Tuesday in fires that appeared to have been deliberately set.
A fire at the vacant, two-story house at 3213 E Caracas St. was under control within 10 minutes of Tampa Fire Rescue arriving at 4:25 a.m. Damages are estimated at $15,000. The cause of a fire at an unoccupied trailer on Sixth Avenue near Nuccio Parkway is listed as suspicious. Damages are estimated at $9,000.
Authorities said there is no connection between Tuesday's fires and the 30-plus suspicious fires in Tampa Heights and Ybor City.
