and Big Bear Fire Department Fire Fighters
responded immediately to a report off a structure fire, Friday at approximately
7:30 A.M. The residential structure fire located in the 400 block of East Big

identified and taken into custody. Cody was booked at West Valley Detention Center on felony charges of arson, and
remains in custody on $250,000 bail. An arraignment hearing in this matter is
