ST. IGNATIUS- Some new details are emerging in the arrest of 19-year-old Chase Kuntz, who was arrested for a June 5th arson in St. Ignatius.
"The gentleman that was arrested was found in the location of the area of the fire that morning and there was a questionable 911 call that was put in and is what led them to talk to him about this incident," St. Ignatius Fire Chief Martin Frazzini explained.
Authorities say that an arsonist has targeted five unoccupied buildings, two cars and a ditch in the past several months. But at this point, officials are not sure if the recent arrest is related to any of the other arson fires in the area.
Anyone with information about the arson string is asked to call Crimestoppers at (406) 883.7309. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
