On Thursday, Davenport Police arrested and charged Zachariah Arrington, 36, of Davenport, with first degree arson with an incident on May 27, 2021.
On that date, around 11:15 p.m., the Davenport Police Department responded to a fire in the 1600 block of West 17th Street.
When firefighters arrived they found smoke coming from a back porch. Police, already on the scene, had removed a burning lawn mower from the porch that was quickly extinguished.
Smoke and fire damage was limited to the back porch of the home. No injuries were reported from the incident.
A preliminary investigation determined the fire was intentionally set, for which Arrington was eventually charged.
