Man Facing Arson Charges In Lima Fire

Lima N.Y.-A Lima man will face arson charges in connection with a fire overnight at a Lima apartment house.

 The fire was reported just after midnight in the 71-hundred block of College Street.

The Sheriff says landlord Richard Willson poured gasoline inside the home in an attempt to burn it down. Deputies made a mental health arrest and Willson was sent to the hospital to be treated for third-degree burns on his foot and lower leg.

He will be charged with arson when he is released.

The home is a total loss. Some firefighters also had to be treated for heat exhaustion.
