CLIMAX, GA (WALB) - Two south georgia volunteer firefighters are in jail charged with arson.

Monday, Decatur county deputies arrested 18-year-olds Gregory Kelly and Jake Meredith.

Kelly is a firefighter in Climax. Meredith in Fowlstown.

Investigators say the men are responsible for a woodland fire and a fire at a rundown structure last month in Climax.

Investigators are looking into 8-10 fires they've had in the area recently they suspect were intentionally set.

They believe the boys started the fires simply to generate some excitement.
