ATLANTA – On November 16th, a member of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King’s Fire Investigations Unit was requested to assist in a fire investigation on Highway 20 in Loganville. The fire occurred at approximately 3:00 p.m. and moderately damaged the 47-year-old, 1848-square-foot residence.

“A resident was home at the time of the fire and immediately called emergency services,” said Commissioner King. “Investigators arrived on scene to find a fire in the basement and, upon extinguishment, determined it was intentionally set. Anyone with information about this Walton County fire is invited to call my Fire Investigations Unit at 1-800-282-5804.”

Commissioner King’s Fire Investigations Unit is assisting the Walton County Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office with this investigation. In coordination with the State Fire Investigations Unit, a reward of up to $10,000 is offered by Georgia Arson Control for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for arson.


The mission of the Office of the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner is to protect Georgia families by providing access to vital insurance products and safe buildings through fair regulation that creates economic opportunities for all Georgians.
