DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) -Decatur county Sheriff's investigators are asking for the public's help to catch whoever is responsible for numerous recent arsons.

Investigators believe that eight arsons in Decatur County since March may all be the work of the same person.

Authorities say vacant homes in the Black Jack community are the targets of the arsonist. Nearby residents are on edge.

"I hope they get it like I said. Cause that shouldn't be done," says Delvon Louge. "No pranks or anything like that. That's too much money involved now. Buying materials and repairs."

There is a reward of up to ten-thousand dollars for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for the fires.

If you have any information, call the Decatur County Sheriff's office at (229) 400-8006.
