Two Arrested in Connection with Gardiner Arson: Update 

(AP) Police in Gardiner, Maine, have arrested two men in connection with a fire that gutted much of a former mill. The State Fire Marshal’s Office says 19-year-old Jack Downs of Chelsea and 20-year-old Joshua Lund of Gardiner were arrested Monday night and charged with arson and burglary in connection with last week’s fire that destroyed the vacant Gardiner Paperboard mill in the city. The mills owner Paul Rheaume says currently there are four tenants in the building. Authorities say the two were taken to the Kennebec County Jail in Augusta. Bail was set at $50,000 each. Fire investigators quickly determined that the Sept. 2 blaze was set because it started in two different places.
