Woman comes home to find evidence of arson

LAGRANGE, GA (WXTX) - Tuesday morning a woman returned to her Thrash Road home in the Mountville Community to find that it had been set on fire.

This home fire is similar to five other fires reported late last month in the same area.The home owner told investigators she had been away from her home since May 30.

The Troup County Fire Department says the fire apparently extinguished itself and was not detected in the previous batch of arsons late last month.

We are told similar fires were set in the early morning hours within a span of two hours.

The arsons are being investigated by the Georgia State Arson Department, the Troup County Sheriff's Office, and the Troup County Fire Department.
