A neighborhood in Bethany is on high-alert after someone set several sheds on fire late Monday night.

It happened in the 3800 block of Riverside Drive. That's the same area a two-story home burned just last week. Firefighters told us that house fire was suspicious. Now, happening again just one street over, they're on the hunt for a possible serial-arsonist.

This certainly has people who live in this area worried, and even the State Fire Marshall's Office is working with local firefighters to find out who is responsible.

It was around 10:30 p.m. when Bethany fire crews responded to the report of two sheds on fire along the same block of Riverside Drive, west of Council Road and north of N.W. 36th Street. The fire chief on scene told our crew there was also one shed set on fire in that same area on Friday. 

Just last Wednesday, we reported in this same neighborhood when a large two-story home was set on fire around 3 a.m.

Warr Acres and Yukon Fire Departments were called in to help battle the fires. Bethany, Warr Acres and Oklahoma City police were also sent in to help search the area for a possible suspect.

We've learned they even brought in K-9 units and Air-one. The one positive thing in all this is no one was hurt.
