Lincoln County authorities are on edge after three northwoods vacation cabins or trailers were burglarized and burned.

Sheriff Tom Koth says there seems to be a common theme. All the fires happened in desolate areas to properties that weren’t being used over the winter.

The first cabin burned up in the town of Bradley in late November.

Then, last week, a mobile home burned in the town of Tomahawk. And on Monday night, another seasonal home and nearby trailer were set on fire.

A county investigator marked footprints in the snow at the latest fire.
