Man accused of causing Kalispell business explosion arrested

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - Kalispell Police have made an arrest in the suspected arson case that caused an explosion at a local business last month.

Arnold Wayne Deans turned himself into police and now faces negligent arson and theft charges.

Police and firefighters responded to Rick Anderson Snow Jobs and Dirt on April 19 at around 2:30 a.m. to find flames coming from the parking lot.

Surveillance video captured from a nearby business showed a small fire break out before a sudden explosion. The video then shows somebody running from the scene. 

The fire was extinguished quickly and no one was injured. However, several snowmobiles, ATVs, and UTVs were damaged in the blaze, causing an estimated $50,000 in damage.

Police say tips were generated through the Crimestoppers call-line and social media.
