Officials suspect arson in east Macon vacant house fire

Macon-Bibb County firefighters suspect arson in a vacant house fire early Tuesday morning in east Macon.

Shortly before 4 a.m., crews arrived at 887 Stewart St., about a block off Emery Highway.

Capt. Nathaniel Hall said two rooms burned and there was smoke damage throughout the boarded-up one-story, three-bedroom wood frame house.

There were no working utilities hooked up to the house which makes the blaze suspicious, Hall said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68CRIME or the Georgia Arson hot line at (800) 282-5804.
