(KMOV.com) -- Two firefighters have admitted to setting multiple fires in several building throughout St. Francois County.

Park Hills Sheriff Daniel Bullock said the fire department had problems with six fires. No one was hurt in the fires, but no one knew who was to blame.

Authorities said they questioned Park Hills, Missouri, volunteer firefighters Bradley Easter, 29, and Robert Homer, 22, in connection to allegations of deer poaching when the two admitted to causing the arsons.

“We are still investigating this case,” said Bullock, “Looks like we may have one or two more people that could be involved.”

Both men are being held on a $200,000 bond after six counts of second degree arson.

Police said in addition to the arson charges, Waster and Bradley could also be charged with burglary and property charges, too.
