Warrant issued in mobile home fire

Warrant issued in mobile home fire

The Cedar Springs Police investigation of a mobile home fire in Cedar Springs Mobile Estates resulted in a warrant being issued this week for a 38-year-old Rockford man for arson.

The fire occurred in a single-wide mobile home at 368 Allan at 12:04 a.m. Saturday, June 26. The Cedar Springs Fire Department called Sand Lake Fire to assist at the scene. The fire was classified as suspicious and considered a possible arson from the very beginning, and Michigan State Police Fire investigator, Gregory J. Stormzand, agreed with that assessment.

Officer Mandy Stahl interviewed several witnesses that had been involved with either the victim, or the suspect prior to and after the fire. The victim, Robert Cook, was reportedly seen with the suspect prior to the fire. “We would not consider them acquaintances,” said Police Chief Roger Parent. “We feel our investigation may gain additional information as to why these two individuals were together, after an arrest is made.”

Police believe the suspect has fled the state to avoid arrest. They will not release his name until after he has been arrested and arraigned.
