Ocilla -- A 55-year-old Ocilla man is now charged with setting fire to three houses over the weekend.  

Willie Frank Thomas is accused of starting fires at unoccupied houses on East 5th Street and North Lincoln Street early Sunday. They don't know how the fires were started. Two of the houses were destroyed.

A fourth house, where a family was sleeping, was damaged by the intense heat from the burning house next door, but no one was injured.

Ocilla detectives are continuing their investigation.
