City Man Facing Arson Charges In Dever Road Fires

A 40 year old man is facing arson charges in connection with two fires on the Dever road including one last night.

Crews responded to a fire at 864 Dever Road just before 5 this morning and on arrival found a back building engulfed in flames.

Fire Chief Kevin Clifford says the building was full of 100 pound propane cylinders which should not be stored inside and the building was very secure making it difficult to get access.

Once they gained access, the fire was so intense they had to take a defensive tact on it. 

The blaze was knocked down and no one was hurt.

The man accused of setting the fire is is court today on charges relating to last night's fire and another fire on the Dever Road on October 22nd.
