PLOVER, Wis. (WSAU) -- Three people are face arson charges following the investigation of a April 2013 fire in Plover.
18-year-old Patrick Nowak was brought in on the charges last week and is being held on a $10,000 cash bond. 23-year-old Jeannie Romportl was already in custody on an unrelated felony charge. 25-year-old Brian McLeod is currently serving a sentence on an unrelated case.
Crews were called out to a home under renovation on the 3700 block of Post Road in Plover April 26th to find the house already engulfed in flames. Crews had to shut off the natural gas to the house to put out the fire. No one was injured. Investigators say that unused shop rags and lighter fluid may have started that fire.
Nowak will be back in court March 24th for a hearing in the case.
