No one’s been arrested but we’re told a person of interest has been questioned.

Among the peopled burned out their homesare Shemekia and Ron Robshaw and their five kids. Robshaw is four month’s pregnant.

The family lived above the game shop, which they owned.

For now, they plan to rent a house in town, but all of the people burned out of their apartments need help.

The Town Manager says he’s also working with business owners on a plan to rebuild Main Street.
