Authorities said a member of the West Virginia Air National Guard was injured when responding to the fire call early on Sunday morning.
The pilot assigned to the 167th Airlift Wing in Martinsburg was responding to a mutual assistance call during a structural fire on Charles Town Road, when he was seriously injured.
Investigators believe that this fire and another fire were about three miles apart and were deliberately set fire within 20 minutes of each other. Both fires were set between 1 am and 2 am, and neither building was occupied.
The guard said in a press release that the name of the attendant will be kept for 24 hours until relatives are notified.
