Dougherty County -- Dougherty County Police are investigating a copper theft and fire in a home that is still under construction.

 Two O-clock Sunday morning a passer by stopped at the Fire Station on Newton Road, and told Firefighters they spotted smoke coming from this house in the 6000 block of Hardup Road.

Firefighters say the fire was confined to about a ten foot square inside the home, and quickly put it out. The cause of that fire is still undetermined.

 But Dougherty County Police Investigators say about $1000 worth of copper wiring that had already been installed in the house was stolen.
