Neighbors react to serial arsonist

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email | twitter

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Decatur County Investigators continue to search for the person or people who set a series of houses on fire in the past seven months.

They're looking into 10 arsons within a square mile of each other in the Black Jack Community.

The eight houses and two sheds were all vacant, but neighbors worry one of those fires could spread to their homes.

"The house behind me has been empty for about two months," said Black Jack Community resident, Don Green. "Several of them around here are empty. I have a pool house out here that looks empty and I'm worried they might try to come out here and set it on fire."

A reward of up to $10,000 is offered to anyone who can offer tips leading to an arrest. Call the Decatur County Sheriff's Office at 248-3044.
