2 charged with arson in connection with Maine house fire

SANFORD, Maine (AP) — Two men have been taken into custody and charged with arson in connection with a house fire in Maine.

The fire damaged a house in Sanford earlier this month.

Sanford police arrested Johnathan Cox on Tuesday night and Berwick police arrested Lonnie McMahon on Monday. Both were being held at the York County Jail. It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers.

Fire marshals had asked for help from the public to find the suspects.
