BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A 25-year-old man is accused of starting a fire at Heritage Christian School in Bozeman in 2012 and again on Friday.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1ywr4Xz ) Zachary James Silflow was arrested Friday evening and charged with two counts of arson and two counts of burglary.

Lt. Ryan Stratman with the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office says Friday morning’s fire was controlled in about 90 minutes, and officials say the damage was minimized because of the sprinkler and alarm system installed during the last remodel of the building.

School officials said rebuilding the gym and auditorium after the 2012 fire cost nearly $3 million, most of which was covered by insurance. Friday’s fire was not as destructive.
