At approximately 9:55 p.m. on April 4, 2016, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to a call about an unwanted person at 25945 S. El Dorado Rd. om Mulino OR. Sheriff's Office deputies left the scene after helping tenants leave the property -- but were quickly called back because of a fire on the property.

Upon returning, deputies found a barn fully engulfed in flames.

The size and nature of the fire required an evacuation of nearby residents. Molalla Fire and Colton Fire responded and worked the fire. The barn is a total loss.

Deputies were able to contact and arrest Justin F. Smith, 37, of Mulino Oregon. Mr. Smith was transported to the Clackamas County Jail, where he was lodged on  one count of Arson I and 1 count of Criminal Mischief I. His full booking info is here.
