Arson and vandalism investigation continues

June 9, 2003

Ashburn- 332 Madison Avenue remains a crime scene after fire destroyed the home Saturday night. The case has been turned over to the state fire marshal and the GBI.

The Ashburn fire and police departments are also working the case.

"At this time it's an open investigation and we're not releasing any reports or making any comments, so pretty much our comment at this point is it's an open investigation and we won't do anything to jeopardize the investigation," says Ashburn Fire Chief Brian Meadows.

Chief Meadows says it could take weeks to find out who set the fire and vandalized the house.
