Fitzgerald man faces possible homicide charges

Fitzgerald- The fire that destroyed the historic Ford Building was the second dangerous fire in Fitzgerald in less than 24 hours.

Thursday night, a Fitzgerald man was in jail charged with arson and he may soon be charged with murder. This house on Suwanee Street caught fire around 10 p.m. Wednesday night.

Two people were inside, the female homeowner and 42-year-old Andre Bernard Green.

Green made it out. The woman did not. Police now say Green set the fire.

They got autopsy results Thursday night that showed the woman died of smoke inhalation. Chief William Smallwood says he'll meet with the district attorney about further charges.
