JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson fire investigators are looking into what sparked two house fires near downtown Friday morning.

Both houses on Bloom Street were vacant.

No one was hurt.

Residents in the area say they believe the fire was likely set by someone trying to stay warm overnight.

Several other abandoned houses on the block burned down earlier this year.

Resident Dot Smith said, "This is a vagrant area so they find any place where they can got to do whatever they got to do, they probably set it on fire."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
