Burousas fire definitely arson; reward offered

As we reported yesterday, state fire marshals have ruled the weekend fire at the home of Teresa and the late Buzz Burousas near Concord was deliberately set. The home was the scene of a July 1 shooting death. Buzz Burousas was shot twice and killed. Teresa Burousas is charged with his murder. She feigned an attack on herself to cover up her role in the slaying, authorities have said. Georgia insurance commissioner John W. Oxendine confirmed someone set fire to the house. ”Based on our observations at the scene we could tell this fire was arson,” Oxendine said. ”We don’t know for sure if this fire is related to the alleged murder but obviously, because of the circumstances, we are looking at it very carefully,” Oxendine said. Oxendine is asking anyone with information abut this fire to call his arson hotline at 1-800-282-5804. Rewards up to $10,000 are given for information leading to the arrest and conviction of an arsonist. Calls are taken at the hotline 24 hours per day and tipsters can choose to remain anonymous. Oxendine’s arson unit is working with Pike County Sheriff Jimmy Thomas and Pike County Fire Chief Danny Henderson. Now the question is who set the fire and why.
