An arrest has been made in Monday’s fire at the press box at the Midwest Little League field.
The Ottumwa Police Department says after an investigation, a 13-year-old female juvenile was arrested and charged with reckless use of fire, a serious misdemeanor. The minor was later released to her parents.
Shortly after 7:00 PM on Labor Day, crews from the Ottumwa Fire Department responded to the blaze at the field on the west side of Ottumwa. It took firefighters approximately 30 minutes to extinguish the fire.
