Arsonist sets dorm fire

February 17, 2004

Valdosta - South Georgia police are looking for someone who set fire to a dorm room.

It happened Sunday night in this Lowndes Hall dorm room at Valdosta State University. Some sort of accelerant was used to ignite the fire.

Police say even though only minor damage to the carpet and door was caused, the person responsible will be punished. "We've called in an arson investigator, we do have some evidence that we're looking into and if we are able to find this person or persons, we'll prosecute to the fullest extent of the law," said VSU Police Chief Scott Doner.

A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the arsonist. If you have any information about this case you can call VSU's anonymous tip line at 293-6263.
