VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Fire Department is trying to figure out who set a series of fires over the weekend.
 
Investigators think kids likely set the fires around 1:30 Sunday morning outside three homes in the 600 and 700 blocks of East Adair Street.
The arsonists set a dog house on fire at 611 E. Adair Street, a mail box at 613 E. Adair Street, and lit pine straw on fire at 701 E. Adair Street.
 
 
"We have not come to the determination of how many people, but basically we're lookin' for youth, maybe between the ages of 12 and 17, that was out just doin' mischievous stuff that night," explained Edgar Tooley, arson investigator with the Valdosta Fire Department.
 
 
Tooley wants people to remember that this is a crime and is punishable by jail time.
You can call in tips to the Valdosta Fire Department at 229-333-1835.
