Valdosta - A south Georgian will be honored Tuesday for helping solve an arson-murder case.

The good Samaritan will be presented with a $9,000.00 check by Fire Safety Commissioner John Oxendine.

The reward is for information that helped convict arsonist Cynthia Allen.

Investigators say in October 2005, Allen set fire to a home on Troupe Street in Valdosta with nine people asleep inside.

Four of them were killed, but rescuers were able to pull five people from the burning home.
