Man Arrested for Arson in Colorado Barn Fire
A Colorado man has been charged with setting a barn fire that killed six horses earlier this year.
In April fire crews responded to four fires near Lakewood, Colorado. Three of the blazes, including a fire in a barn housing 10 horses, took place within a block of each other. Six of the 10 horses died in the fire while four others were rescued. The fourth fire occurred just over a mile away from the other three.
