A former Madison Parish volunteer firefighter was arrested for arson for setting ablaze a vacant mobile home in his neighborhood, WBRZ reports.

According to the report, the incident took place on Aug. 8. Firefighters responded to a call of a mobile home fire that evening, leading fire investigators to determine the blaze was caused by “suspicious circumstances”.

A subsequent investigation by the state fire marshal and the Madison Parish Sheriff’s Office revealed volunteer firefighter Cody Faulkner to be a suspect.

Faulkner later admitted to deputies he was the one who caused the fire. He was arrested by the Office of the State Fire Marshal on Aug. 9 and charged with simple arson.
