Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Two people in Georgia are sharing a reward for providing crucial tips to authorities after someone set fire to a city office building.

Fire officials say the two witnesses in Savannah will share the $10,000 reward.

Each was credited with reporting unusual activity on May 3, 2020, when the city’s code enforcement building burned.

Those tips helped lead to the arrest of 19-year-old Stephen Charles Setter.

He was sentenced to five years in federal prison in March after pleading guilty to a charge of arson.

The fire was set late at night when the building was unoccupied. No one was injured.
