NAHUNTA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say arson caused a wildfire that has consumed about 2,250 acres in southeast Georgia.

Frank Sorrells, district manager for the Georgia Forestry Commission, said Wednesday that investigators had confirmed the
blaze that has burned since Monday in Brantley County was intentionally set.

The Forestry Commission is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the wildfire.

Sorrells says the fire is 95 percent contained and is expected to burn itself out. No homes have been damaged by the blaze, which began near Georgia 121 south of Hoboken.
