Fire Investigators with the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner’s Office have determined a fire that occurred around 9:20 P.M. on Wednesday, February 19, at a Walker County residence, was intentionally set.
The fire was set in the closet of the master bedroom at the home located at 1300 West Sherry Drive in Rossville, Georgia.
“The 1,075 square-foot home suffered major interior damages from the fire that started in the master bedroom. An attempt to start a second fire was made in a different closet, but thankfully the fire extinguished on its own before spreading,” said Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King. “If you have any information on the individual or individuals responsible, I ask that you call my Fire Investigations Unit at 1-800-282-5804.”
Rewards are offered of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the arsonist(s). Calls are taken 24 hours a day and callers can choose to remain anonymous.
Commissioner King’s Fire Investigations Unit is assisting the Walker County Fire Department with this investigation.
