Investigators say overnight trailer fire could be arson

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus fire investigators say an overnight fire on Cusseta Road may have been set on purpose, and they believe the person living inside may have had a run-in with the possible suspect.

Deputy Chief Greg Lang says the fire happened around 1:45 Thursday morning. The fire was started in the hallway and caused thousands of dollars in damage.

Tamesha Williams recently rented the trailer, and although she had moved most of her belongings in, she was still staying at a hotel and was not home at the time of the fire. 

The fire investigator says Williams had an altercation with a juvenile yesterday and believe he could be the person responsible.  

The fire remains under investigation.
