A Logan man has been taken into custody for allegedly setting fire to a trailer on Tuesday.

The fire department was called to the Riverside RV Park at 447 West and 1700 South at around 10:45 a.m. Tuesday. When they arrived, the 5th-wheel trailer was fully engulfed. The tenant of that trailer was identified as 40-year-old Christian Fitting, who was found standing in front of the burning trailer.

A cat was inside the trailer at the time of the fire and fire crews were unable to attempt to rescue it. No one else was inside the trailer and there were no other injuries.

Police say Fitting had an ongoing problem with the landlord at the RV park.

Fitting was taken into custody on Wednesday for first degree felony aggravated arson, class A misdemeanor reckless endangerment, class A misdemeanor cruelty to animals and class C misdemeanor intoxication.
