Ocilla, GA (WALB) –  The Ocilla Police Department is offering up to $500 for information on an early morning arson.

Around 5:00AM people living at a house on Roosevelt Street woke up because they smelled smoke. They got up and noticed a fire in the utility room.

Police and firefighters were called, and thankfully firefighters were able to contain the fire in the room.

Police say the fire was suspicious, because it started in a spot in the house where there was no electricity. The state fire Marshall was called and determined the fire was set intentionally.

"There wasn't no wires so we are not sure how it started we are going to leave that up to the police department but other than that we are just trying to thank god nobody was hurt," said resident Cassandra Tolbert.

Police do not know the exact cause of the fire, but if you have any information on this case you are urged to call the Ocilla Police Department at 229-468-7494.
