OCILLA, GA (WALB) –Up to a $500.00 reward is offered in an Ocilla arson.

Someone set fire to a house on Roosevelt Street before daylight Thursday. The people who live there awoke to the smell of smoke around 5 a.m. and discovered the utility room on fire.

Investigators say the fire started in a spot where there was no electricity and the state fire marshal says it was intentionally set.

"There were no wires so we are not sure how it started. We are going to leave that up to the police department but we are just thankful nobody was hurt," said Cassandra Tolbert, who lives at the house.

If you have any information on this case you are urged to call the Ocilla Police Department at 468-7494.
