SHERMAN, TX -- Sherman Fire Department believe a Sherman house was intentionally set on fire again last night.

Around midnight last night, a house was reported to be on fire in the 1400 block of N. Brents.

Crews found a small fire in the same room that had burnt Christmas eve killing a 2-year-old.

Sherman Fire Department says that a fire was also set in the house in June.

They are still looking for who started the fire, but they believe that there have been criminal activity in the abandoned home.

"The house has not been secured, so its open... We believe there's criminal activity going on inside the house. And that people are using that for various activities and started a fire in the process," said Sherman Fire Chief Jeff Jones.

There was not a lot of damage from the fire last night, or the one in June. Most of the damage to the home was from the original fire in December.
