Waycross, GA – Two suspects both 17 and 23 were charged with arson and murder for the death of Waycross Fire Lt. Jeffrey Little, media sources say.


The ceiling of a floor above him collapsed on him and another firefighter around 0200 last Sunday.  He was transported to the hospital where he later died an hour later from his injuries.  A second firefighter escaped from the rubble and reportedly had minor injuries.

A tip was called into the Arson hotline after the pair were interviewed.

Lt. Little’s memorial service will be held on Friday.
