Monday morning’s West Side warehouse fire was a huge blaze that caused an incredible amount of destruction. Let alone the lives that it put at risk including the 75 firefighters that took on the challenge of getting it under control and putting it out. And now a man has confessed to intentionally starting the fire.
Responding to tips, a man named Robin Toms quickly became a suspect. By the end of the day, the man that never worked at one of the businesses inside the warehouse and appeared to have no connection to the building, confessed to setting it on fire. He has been charged with aggravated arson and is currently being held on $750,000 bond.
Toms says that he stole a jacket and some cigarettes from a locker inside the warehouse before starting the fire.[symple_button url=”http://nbc4i.com/2015/12/14/2-alarm-fire-reported-in-west-columbus-warehouse/” color=”red” button_target=”_blank”]More at NBC4[/symple_button]
