Marshalltown arson suspect is arrested


A Marshalltown man has been arrested on arson charges after at least two suspicious fires in Marshalltown.

Andrew Burke, 26, faces two counts of first degree arson.

He is accused of starting a fire on Feb. 7 that destroyed a historic downtown building and a garage. That century old building housed a grocery store and apartments.

Police believe the fires are connected with other suspicious fires in Marshalltown recently, but they are still investigating.

Burke is being held at the Marshall County jail pending a court appearance.
