Hahira - Two South Georgians are rewarded for helping solve an arson case.

State Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine gave a $1,000 check to Hahira Mayor Myron Crowe Wednesday.

He'll give the money to two Hahira residents who wished to remain anonymous. They gave up information that led to the arrest and conviction of three juveniles who set the old Hahira Middle School on fire.

"We had two citizens come forward very rapidly and gave us invaluable information, had it not been for that information we probably wouldn't have solved this crime," said Oxendine.

The city of Hahira had plans to move their offices into the old school, but the fire completely destroyed the building.
