VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) — Georgia Arson Control is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest of the person, or persons, responsible for the fire at Andy's Wings in Valdosta on Monday.

The restaurant's owner, Andrique McCrae spent Wednesday afternoon cleaning up the mess left behind from that fire.

The business has been around for 30 years selling everything from barbecue to soul food.

While the business will be rebuilt at a new location, McCrae says he doesn't understand why anyone would want to destroy his family's business.

"It's crazy, we try to show love to the community, and just feed everybody and bless the streets, but I don't know who would want to do such a thing," said McCrae.

McCrae says they appreciate the community's support and everyone who has helped them clean up their building.

Anyone with information can call Georgia Arson Control at 229-333-1835 or 1-800-282-5804.
