A fire Tuesday night in apartment 2 at an eight-unit apartment building at 545 Gruber Avenue in Mansfield leads to an arrest.

Police say the tenant, 28-year-old Steve Isaac  was cooking meth when the fire broke-out, gutting his apartment and damaging several adjacent units.

Isaac fled, but was found early Thursday at 100 Dale Avenue.

Metrich, Mansfield Police, and the Allied Special Response Team raided the small house and arrested Isaac on a first-degree felony aggravated arson charge.  More charges are expected.

Police arrested three other people at 100 Dale Avenue where an inactive meth lab was found in the garage, along with cocaine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

34-year-old Andrew Lykins is charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and two failure to appear warrants.

25-year-old Ashlee Hall is charged with felony crack cocaine possession and two failure to appear warrants.

27-year-old Rachel Marcum also was picked up on a misdemeanor warrant.
