More buildings burn in Benton Park

A rash of arsons in a St. Louis neighborhood has residents on edge.
 
Saturday night, a vacant building on the 3300 block of Wisconsin ave in Benton Park caught fire. It's just one of almost two dozen residents say have gone up in flames over the past six months.
 
NewsChannel5 has been tracking the suspicious fires over the past several months. All of them appear to have been set in vacant buildings, in and around the Benton park neighborhood.
 
In an area that has seen some of the biggest jumps in building permits in the city, these arsons are taking a toll on development.
