Man arrested for not reporting fire
Mitchell police arrested a man last week for failing to report a fire that damaged a home on Fifth Avenue.
Levi Adam Young Sr., 31, was arrested for failure to report or control a dangerous fire. The charge carries a maximum penalty upon conviction of one year in county jail and a $2,000 fine.
According to a press release from the Mitchell Police Division, Young allegedly attempted to put the fire out, but was unable to extinguish it. He apparently left the residence without notifying anybody.
Other agencies involved in the investigation were the Mitchell Fire Division, the South Dakota Division of Criminal investigation and the South Dakota State Fire Marshal's Office.
