The Valdosta Fire Department was investigating Wednesday a suspicious fire that damaged an apartment.

Around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, the fire department responded to 2010 Melrose Dr. for a report of a structure fire. When they got there, they found a mattress on fire in the back patio of apartment A.

The fire caused minor damage to part of the outside of the apartment.

The residents had given firefighters some leads Tuesday night, but as of Wednesday investigators were only calling it a suspicious fire and not arson. "He had, maybe, an indication who may have done it but we just gotta follow up on our leads and interview and we've gotta check all our sources, said Valdosta Fire Marshal Cpt. James Clinkscales.

Call the Valdosta Fire Department at 229-333-1835 if you have any information.
