Emergency Services received a 911 call reporting a fire on the 100 block of Etheridge Road in Auburn. “Firefighters found two rooms of a vacant trailer with heavy fire showing,” stated Battalion Chief Mike Stoops. “”We made an aggressive interior attack and were able to quickly bring the fire under control.”
The doublewide trailer was vacant. The fire investigation team and the Auburn Police Department investigated this fire and determined it was arson. An Auburn police officer responding to the area stopped a suspicious subject. This subject led to the identity of several suspects and the eventual arrest of a person in this case.
“The investigation was handled jointly by both departments,” said Chief Investigator Blair Darst. “Auburn Police officers did a great job in identifying suspects in this case and making an arrest.”
No names were release due to the suspects being juveniles ranging from 14-16 years of age. The juveniles are from the Winder and Auburn areas. The arrested suspect was charged with second-degree arson, and authorities anticipated other charges as the investigation continues.
