An early morning fire at a south Macon apartment complex has been ruled arson.
At about 2 a.m. Thursday, Macon-Bibb County firefighters were called to Majestic Gardens at 2560 Rocky Creek Road where a fire was burning outside of the leasing office.
“There was a strong odor consistent with evaporated gasoline,” fire investigator Lt. Ben Gleaton said.
The flames were confined to the vinyl siding of the building, he said, but posters are going up on the property looking for information about the arsonist.
