HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A 31-year-old Helena man has been arrested on suspicion of arson for a fire that caused an estimated $1 million in damage to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Police Sgt. Cory Bailey told The Independent Record (http://bit.ly/1fNvBBu ) that Daniel Boos faces two counts of arson. Bailey did not provide a suspected motive or whether Boos had any previous involvement with the ReStore.

Fire Marshal Craig Trapp said the fire appeared to have started in the attic. It was reported at about 4 a.m. Thursday.

The ReStore supports Habitat for Humanity projects through the sale of new and used building materials. It also houses the group’s offices.

Helena Area Habitat for Humanity Director Jacob Kuntz said the building recently passed an inspection with the fire marshal.
