Albany --The number of fires set by children has reached an all-time high. In Georgia alone, 25 percent of all arsons are started by juveniles, and nationwide it's double that number.
Next week during National Arson Awareness Week, Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John Oxendine plans to call more attention to what he says in a deadly trend.
"It's becoming an increasing social problem, kids thinking it's cute. We are also seeing that more kids using arsons to cover up burglaries they have committed ," says Oxendine.
Last year, arsons in Georgia killed 10 people and caused 13 million dollars in property damage.
