Authorities in southwest Iowa’s Mills County say a 22-year-old Glenwood man was arrested Tuesday in connection with a fire at the Mills County Sheriff’s Office.
Adam Houchin was arrested on suspicion of first-degree arson, a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison, and possession of an incendiary device, a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Houchin was being held in the Mills County Jail, authorities said.
The Iowa State Fire Marshal’s Office determined that three fires had been intentionally set about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at the sheriff’s office.
Officials said Houchin and his girlfriend were involved in a domestic disturbance Monday night, and she was arrested and was being held in the Mills County Jail when Houchin allegedly set the fires.
