The State Fire Marshal’s office is offering a reward for information regarding an arson case in the city of Eatonton, according to Eatonton Fire Chief Eugene Hubert.
Eatonton firefighters responded to a fire on Grand Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. Hubert said Georgia Public Safety Fire Marshal Investigator Mickey Hunt confirms a Dodge Caravan van was set on fire and the fire spread to the house.
A mother and four children were inside the house at the time, but all escaped without injury, Hubert said.
One room of the house, on the side where the Caravan was parked, was damaged, but can be repaired, according to the Fire Chief.
Putnam County Fire Department assisted the city firefighters. The case is still under investigation by Eatonton Police Department and Georgia Fire Marshal’s Investigations Unit. Anyone with information about this fire should call EPD at 706-485-3551 or the State office at 800-282-5804.
