The Corpus Christi Fire Department is investigating two morning house fires. The flames broke out just after 2:30 on the 200 block of Watson Street near Ayers. Fire crews arrived to find two separate houses across the street from one another on fire. Battalion Chief Kenneth Erben says because of that, they are treating the fire as suspicious.
"We can assume its suspicious, we do have investigators out and we are trying to investigate."
Fire officials believe both homes were abandoned. No injuries were reported.
