There has been another arson in the Newberry section of Williamsport, according to investigators.

The fire chief said a cardboard box was torched about 3 a.m. Thursday in a carport at 800 Poplar Street.

Police officers managed to put out the flames before any serious damage was done.

Officials said a man and his wife were home and noticed flickering outside and called 911.

Investigators said the arson is similar to about a half-dozen others in recent weeks in the area.

Anyone with information about the arsons is asked to call authorities in Williamsport.
