Ga. Ar­son­ist sus­pected of torch­ing homes

The Covington News - - Around the region -

LO­GANVILLE (AP) — Fire of­fi­cials are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a rash of ar­sons that have dam­aged homes in a metro At­lanta neigh­bor­hood.

The Gwin­nett Daily Post re­ports that the lat­est fire broke out Fri­day af­ter­noon and caused dam­age to the inside of a home. The fires have been set in a col­lec­tion of sub­di­vi­sions known as Range Heights in the Lo­ganville area, about 30 miles east of At­lanta.

Au­thor­i­ties say three ar­son fires have taken place in Range Heights in the last two months.

Fire Depart­ment spokesman Lt. Colin Rhoden says ar­son in­ves­ti­ga­tors are work­ing to de­velop a sus­pect and have dis­trib­uted fly­ers in the neigh­bor­hood that ad­ver­tise a $10,000 re­ward.

Au­thor­i­ties say all three homes dam­aged by ar­son fires were re­cently va­cated. Fire of­fi­cials said the first two homes were fore­clo­sures.
