Charges filed in Ladysmith arson


Ladysmith (WQOW) - Charges are filed Monday for a fire that damaged several apartments, a bar, and a laundromat in Ladysmith.

Brett Cox was charged today with arson, and recklessly endangering safety for the fire that happened nearly two weeks ago.  

He's accused of setting the fire in his apartment minutes before he moved out and drove off in a moving truck. Investigators say Cox confessed, and said he had prior issues with setting fires, and would probably set them in the future.
