ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Arson investigators were on the scene of an Albany home where a vacant RV caught fire Tuesday morning. They say vagrants may have started the fire.
Firefighters say the homeowners are out of town working in South Carolina. Their home wasn't damaged or tampered with but the RV sitting in their yard was destroyed.
At 3:30 Albany firefighters were called out to 104 West Road. The RV was engulfed in flames when they arrived. They put it out in about five minutes but the RV was already gutted.
Arson investigator Sam Harris was called to check out the damage. They're treating it as an arson but based on the preliminary investigation he believes vagrants likely started the fire.
He said, "Well it's a prolonged cold winter but also the economy has taken a downturn and people that have jobs don't anymore. They've lost their homes and are looking for a place to live."
He says a couple weeks ago a home on Hunter street was set fire by vagrants and just Sunday night a vacant home on South McKinley caught fire where it looked as though people had been living inside for awhile.
Investigators will head back to the RV on West Road later Tuesday to continue their investigation.
As the cold temperatures continue it's a good idea to keep any structures on your property secure overnight, like RVs and sheds to keep unwanted visitors out.
Also keep an eye on your property and neighbors property during the day. If you notice anything or anyone suspicious call 911.
