FOREST PARK, Ga. (AP) — Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens says he and other state officials are expecting to present a $3,000 reward to a tipster who provided information on a house fire.
Hudgens says he and the Georgia Arson Control Board, Inc. are hosting an award ceremony Tuesday morning at the Forest Park Fire Department. Hudgens says the tipster provided information on a July 2012 fire at a house in the city about 10 miles south of downtown Atlanta.
Hudgens says the Georgia Arson Control Program allows people who supply information leading to an arrest and conviction in arsons to become eligible for rewards of up to $10,000.
