VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Fire and Police Departments were working Wednesday to try to figure out who may have tried to burn down a Valdosta nightclub.

A fire broke out in the DJ both around 3:30 Wednesday morning at Club Dream, also known as Club 229, on Bemiss Rd.

The club was closed at the time and no one was hurt, but Valdosta Fire Marshal James Clinkscales said as of late Wednesday morning it was looking like the fire was an arson.

"It's headed in that direction, but we wanna make sure we cover all our bases before we go ahead and initially call it arson," Cpt. Clinkscales emphasized. "We got some theories and leads that we're tryin' to work on."

Damage was estimated at $40,000.

Georgia Power was called in to cut power to the building. Cpt. Clinkscales said the club would have to pass a building inspection before power would be restored.
