Serial arsonist hits five more homes

The area’s serial arsonist hit five more homes overnight Sunday. UPDATE: Spalding also had two fires overnight. Not all of the homes were destroyed but all were damaged. The arsonist struck a mobile home on Hwy. 74 in Upson County that he had previously hit. “He went back to finish that one off,” sheriff Brad White said Monday morning. Other Lamar homes where blazes were set were at: 260 Willis Rd. 433 Silver Dollar Rd. 403 Old Scout Rd. The arsonist is also suspected in an overnight fire at a location in Culloden. In most instances a small white truck was seen near the homes in the hours and days leading up to the fires. UPDATE: Spalding County reported two overnight fires as well though it is not known if they are the work of the same suspect. A 3 a.m. fire struck a home on Steel Rd. in north Spalding resulting in moderate damage. A second fire call at 6:01 a.m. involved a home on Hallmark Dr. in the Amberwood subdivision. That home was a total loss, according to Bill Taylor of WKEU.
