Men charged with burning bridge

Clarksville (KWWL) - Two men are in jail for a Butler County bridge fire.

18-year-old Blake Hartzell and Samuel Swinton, both of Clarksville, have been charged with arson. The Butler County Sheriff's Office says the men set fire to the Rolling Prairie Trail Bridge last October.

The Bridge crosses the Shell Rock River, and was part of the Butler County Bike Trail. Damage is estimated at $300,000, and left the bridge unusable.
