Charges In Hardwick Arson Fire

Three 18-year-old men are facing arson charges in connection with a fire that destroyed most of a Hardwick log yard.

Police in Hardwick charged Randall Sayers of Woodbury, Hezekiah McCullough of Hardwick and Riley Reagan of Eden with arson, burglary and larceny for the July 29 fire at Buffalo Mountain Wood Storage and Transfer.

Police say Sayers, McCullough and a third young man from Hardwick also face petit larceny and burglary charged in connection with a July 5 burglary at the same business.

Business owner Ken Davis tells the Caledonian Record the fire burned about 75 percent of his building, causing $150,000 in damage.
