Person Found Responsible for Westville Mobile Home Fire

HOLMES COUNTY-- Local and state investigators say they've identified the person responsible for burning down a Westville family's home.

Last Thursday morning the Tate's woke up to find their mobile home on fire.

The couple and their two sons escaped, but the fire destroyed the structure.

It was the third fire at the family's home in less than a month.

On July 10 and July 13, someone firebombed the mobile home.

Tuesday, the State Fire Marshal and Holmes County Sheriff's Investigators announced they'd interviewed a suspect who admitted to starting all three fires from inside the residence.

That suspect is now being treated at a mental health facility.
