An Eastern Iowa assistant fire chief allegedly started several small grass fires, reports AM 950.
A series of small fires have erupted in the town since March. Over the course of several weeks, firefighters responded to seven fires in the area.
Eventually, investigators settled on 30-year-old Timothy Hora of Oxford as their primary suspect.
Hora is charged with five counts of Arson in the 3rd Degree and Public Intoxication, reports AM 950.
