Man Arrested, Charged in String of Fires

Investigators in Eau Claire think they’ve solved a series of arson fires. 

Prosecutors yesterday charged 34-year-old Joshua Stromme with seven counts of arson.  Eau Claire Police say Stromme set a number of fires at local parks, inside dumpsters, and even at an Eau Claire bus stop between November 20th and November 30th.  Detectives say Stromme admitted setting the fires, and said the fire at the bus stop near Sacred Heart Hospital was tied to his mental health struggles.  He’s being held on a 25-thousand dollar cash bond.
