Ga. School Fire Ruled Arson

February 18, 2004

Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John Oxendine said a recent fire that destroyed the former Hahira High School was arson.

High winds reportedly fanned the flames and made firefighting efforts especially difficult. The 70-year-old old school building on East Main Street had been vacant for several years, according to Oxendine.

A preliminary estimate placed the loss at approximately $100,000.
