A man is in custody after authorities said he admitted to starting a fire at a Pizza Hut in DeKalb County early Wednesday morning.

DeKalb Fire Rescue crews responded at around 4:30 a.m. to the restaurant on Evans Mill Road in Stonecrest. No one was injured in the fire, Battalion Chief Kimani Heath said.

Firefighters saw flames going through the roof and were able to quickly extinguish the fire, Heath said.

Police “saw one man right in front of the structure,” Heath said. “They detained him and he admitted to setting the blaze.”

The man has not been publicly identified and authorities have not released other details about the investigation.
