BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A 46-year-old Brattleboro man faces charges in what authorities say was a July 7 arson fire on South Main Street in the town.
James A. Ryan of Brattleboro was arraigned Monday in the criminal division of Windham Superior Court on the arson charge as well as multiple counts of recklessly endangering another person and giving false reports to police.
None of the residents of the 10-unit apartment building was injured in the fire, but a firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion at the scene.
Authorities say some of the apartments suffered moderate damage.
