Placeholder Image
A High Street home was torched during the pre-dawn hours Monday morning. The property owner has what appears to be a perfect alibi, that being he was in jail when the fire began.The house, belonging to James Copley, was gutted and suffered heavy fire and smoke damage, although firefighters saved the structure itself. McMinnville firefighters were called to the home, located just blocks from downtown, around 3 a.m. Monday.
