RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have made an arrest in what they say was an arson fire in Rapid City.

The 28-year-old Rapid City man was arrested Friday after allegedly stealing a vehicle from a residence and for possessing marijuana.

Authorities say that after the man was taken to jail he confessed to being responsible for a house fire earlier in the morning. Investigators with the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office followed up and determined that the man had started the blaze with a lighter. No one was home at the time.

The man has been arrested on charges related to the vehicle theft, drugs and fire.
