A second arrest was made Wednesday in connection with the fire that destroyed one of the iconic covered bridges in Madison County over the weekend.
Eighteen-year-old Joel Davis of Norwalk is facing a charge of first-degree arson — along with Alex Hoff, the 17-year-old from West Des Moines who was arrested on Tuesday.
A criminal complaint against Hoff shows he was caught on security cameras purchasing a gas can hours before the fire early Saturday. That can was later found near the torched Cedar Bridge.
