Volunteer firefighter charged with arson


A volunteer firefighter and son of a former fire chief is accused of setting fire to his great aunt's home.

Nakina Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad member Christopher McDevitt is charged with second-degree arson for a fire on New Year's morning.

Evelyn Reaves lived in the home across the street from McDevitt.

McDevitt is free on bond, but Fire Chief Jimmy Williams says he has been temporarily suspended from the volunteer fire department.
