MILFORD - Investigators in Milford are looking into the possibility a weekend fire that destroyed three homes and damaged three more may have been intentionally set.

The fire started in a vacant house in the Walnut Beach area and spread quickly to neighboring homes.

Investigators spoke to several witnesses Monday and hope to release the results of their probe soon.

Fire officials say that with the buildings so close together, there was little they could do, except try to contain the flames. It took at least 50 firefighters more than two hours to get it under control.

A total of 11 people are homeless as a result of the fire.
