FARGO (KFGO-AM) - Police have arrested a Fargo man accused of starting a deck fire at his ex-wife's apartment. He was arrested in Moorhead Monday afternoon.
An arrest warrant had been issued for 31-year-old Aaron Rogers. Rogers is charged with arson, terrorizing and criminal trespass. Lt. Joel Vettel says it appears Rogers started the fire with a molotov cocktail, and then returned to the apartment later the same day.
Police were called back to the apartment on a burglary report, but Vettel says Rogers fled before he could be arrested.
Police say Rogers previously told his ex-wife that he would "napalm" her apartment.
The fire was confined to the deck and did not cause any interior damage.
