Fire Fighters Battle 2 Fires in 30 Minutes

Two house fires in 30 minutes, has kept Amarillo firefighters busy this afternoon. 

The first fire was at a home in the 400 block of S. Florida, nobody was injured however the home was destroyed.

The second fire started only a few blocks away on N. Virginia and investigators are looking for answers. 

Because the fires where so close in proximity and broke out within such a short time period, fire fighters earlier thought the two may be connected.

At this time however investigators are saying they no longer believe the fires are conneted.

The cause of both fires are still under investigation.
