An arrest has been made after a suspicious fire in western Iowa last month. An investigation by the Adair County Sheriff’s office and the State Fire Marshall led to the arrest of 19-year-old Andrew Mills of Greenfield Tuesday. Mills allegedly tried to start a fire at a house near Bridgewater twice, once on January 16th then again on January 19th. The Fire Marshall’s office found traces of accelerant after the second incident which completely destroyed the home. No one was living in the house and there were no injuries. Mills is facing second degree arson charges. The Adair County Sheriff’s office would not comment on a possible motive, but did say they are still investigating and could file additional charges in the case.
