Dawsonville RV fire ruled as arson, authorities searching for suspect

An RV located in Dawsonville went up in flames during the midnight hours of Monday and investigators have since then ruled it as arson.

According to a fire investigator with the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner’s Office, authorities determined that an unknown suspect had broken into the RV before the blaze broke out.
“The RV was parked at 476 Henry Pirkle Drive in Dawsonville when the fire began,” said Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King. “It appears that the aluminum 60’s model RV was broken into before the fire was set. No utilities were connected at the time and major damage occurred to the RV.”

Anyone with knowledge about this fire should call the Arson Hotline at 1‐800‐282‐5804. Rewards are offered of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of an arsonist(s).

According to King, calls are taken 24 hours a day and callers can choose to remain anonymous. 
The Dawson County Fire Department is assisting with this investigation.
