Dereck Willis, with VFD, says they know the point of origin, but are waiting for results on the cause of the fire.
"There was not a whole lot left of the vehicle, once it was extinguished, but the good thing about arson investigations, is that there's always something."

According to Lt. Willis, this case is only one of a handfull of arson cases in Valdosta this year.
