ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Firefighters have released new pictures in an arson investigation of two apartments that burned late Monday night.

This is a picture of the chair that Albany Fire Investigators say was set on fire intentionally at 113 Marie Road just before 11:30.  The chair was in the living room, and set the vacant apartment on fire, causing a lot of fire and  smoke damage.

This is a picture of the chair that Albany Fire Investigators say was set on fire intentionally Monday at 113 Marie Road just before 11:30.  The chair was in the living room, and set the vacant apartment on fire, causing a lot of fire and  smoke damage.

About the same time at 200 Marie Road another apartment fire was discovered. This is the chair that investigators say was intentionally set on fire in much the same manner. That's why investigators believe the same person or persons set both fires.

There were no injuries in either fire, but today a very large reward is being offered for information. Up to $10,000.  If you have any information about these arson fires, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
