Man Arrested for Arson in Lincoln County


A suspect was arrested for arson after homeowners in Lincoln County woke up to their house on fire early this morning.

Other small fires were burning around their yard.

Then, as they tried to put out the flames, they saw a man try to set their pickup truck on fire.

The man ran away, but the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office K9 was able to track him.

He’s now in custody and will appear in court tomorrow morning.
