Authorities Charge 2 with Arson in Maine Storage Building Fire

April 10, 2017

State fire officials say two men have been charged with arson in connection with a fire that destroyed a large storage building in Etna, Maine.

Officials say several smaller storage buildings for sale at Hill View Mini Barns also were vandalized on Wednesday morning. They say damage to the business is estimated at $50,000.

Investigators with the state Fire Marshal’s Office on Thursday arrested 23-year-old David Underhill, of Etna, and 18-year-old Mark Littlefield, of Corinna, Maine, and charged them with arson. Underhill is a former employee at the business.

The two men were taken to Penobscot County Jail, where they are being held in lieu of $25,000 bail each. They are expected to appear in court Friday or Monday. It wasn’t immediately known if they are represented by lawyers.
