Fire officials in Harlingen are investigating several blazes believed to be possible arson attacks.
Flames burned 25 acres at the World Birding Center on Wednesday and officials are still not sure if it's a case of intentional arson or accidental.
Crews say eight fires broke out near the Arroyo in the past month and that makes them suspicious and neighbors also report seeing older teens or young adults in the area where the fires burned. The fire started near railroad tracks and Assistant Fire Marshall Danny Warner says it had to be set off by someone either accidentally or on purpose.
