AUBURN, AL (WSFA) - Auburn police say a landmark was briefly torched after Auburn's 49-31 win over the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday night.

Witnesses reportedly saw an upset Georgia fan light the toilet paper hanging from the trees at Toomer's Corner.

Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson says the fire was small and took the fire department five minutes to extinguish.

Authorities say they do not know who actually set the blaze.
