FRANKLIN COUNTY, WA - Franklin County Sheriff Deputies say four people now face charges for arson in connection with multiple fires over the weekend. 

Deputies arrested 36-year-old Arthur R Johnson and 33-year-old Teresa Ferris of Othello, and 36-year-old Nicole M Monk and 24-year-old Eli J. Johnson of Eltopia on Saturday. Deputies also seized one vehicle.

Deputies say they believe the four people are connected to grass cover and haystack fires that happened in Franklin County between Friday and Saturday. 

As part of the investigation, the Sheriffs Office is also looking into whether these arrests are connected to multiple arsons that happened in the area back in July 2013.
