“Fortunately, the occupants of both homes were able to exit to safety with no injuries,” she said.

Police believe the fire first started in a shed located between the two homes shortly before 1 a.m.

“The surveillance photograph shows a female seen walking between the two houses minutes prior to the fire,” Largy said.

At the time fire crews believed the blaze originated in the attic and second floor of one of the homes.
