Two Men Arrested for Jerome Avenue Arson

Yakima, WA - Two men have been arrested for arson in Yakima.  A molotov cocktail was thrown into a home on Jerome Avenue February 25th. They are being charged with arson in the first degree. Police are still searching for a third suspect in this case. A mother and two children were inside at the time, but escaped unharmed. Police say that if it had this happened 15 minutes earlier, this would most likely have been a homicide case.  Damages have been estimated at $35,000 from that fire. The motive appears to be from an assault that happened earlier in the day at another location.
