Fire---outsideWEB
While there's not much visible damage from the outside, the inside of this trailer on Guthrie Road was completely destroyed by fire.
A man who torched the home of his gracious hosts and then walked away, leaving them to burn as they slept, has been found competent to stand trial.The suspected arsonist, William Frances Schwab, 62, was sent for mental evaluation shortly after being hit with a felony charge this summer. The exam found Schwab understands the charges against him, allowing prosecutors to go ahead with their case. Schwab waived his right to preliminary hearing last week and was bound to the grand jury on the charge of aggravated arson.His charge comes after he reportedly set a home at 191 Guthrie Road near Dibrell on fire in July.
