Arson suspect in Bedford Mill fire in custody


BEDFORD TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- An arrest has been made in Bedford Township after a fire that destroyed the historic Bedford Mill early Wednesday.

Police are only saying that they arrested a 19-year-old for arson Saturday afternoon.

It’s not clear if it’s the same 19-year-old who was arrested last month for an earlier attempt to set the building on fire.

Originally built as a flour mill in 1855, it had recently been condemned after its roof collapsed under the weight of last winter’s snow.

The suspect will be arraigned on Monday.
