Valdosta firefighters offer arson reward

Posted: Updated:
VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A reward of up to $10,000 is now being offered in a Valdosta arson case.

Last Wednesday, someone set fire to this Morningside Drive home at all of the doors. Firefighters say whoever started the fire was trying to prevent the people inside from escaping.

Five people including two children were inside the home, but all of them made it out safely.

"They had kids in the house and even though it didn't take off and do a lot of damage to the property, this is still a crime," said Lt. Edgar Tooley, Valdosta Fire Dept.

If you have any information that could help Valdosta firefighters catch the arsonist, call them at 229-333-1853.
