Marion Man Charged With Arson For December Fire

A Marion man has been charged with Arson and other charges in connection with a fire that destroyed his home last month.

58-year old Kevin Houseman was charged with Arson, Criminal Recklessness and Falsifying Information in connection with the fire that destroyed his home in the 26-hundred block of South Meridian Street in December.  Police believe Houseman was operating a meth lab inside the home and the drug making led to the fire.

According to the “Chronicle-Tribune,” members of the Grant County Joint Effort Against Narcotics Unit and Marion Fire investigators agreed that there was evidence of a meth lab inside the home when the fire broke out.
