MARION -- The state fire marshal's office has been called in as part of the investigation of two early morning fires in Marion.

The first was just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday at a mobile home on Princeton Avenue. Firefighters say the home was not occupied. Crews were on scene for about 90 minutes.

At 3:45 a.m., firefighters were called to an apartment on Midway Court. Neighbors told News 3 no one was home at the time of the fire. Crews wrapped up there just before 6 a.m. Thursday.
