LIVERMORE FALLS, Maine  — The State Fire Marshal’s Office says a Livermore Falls man was arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with arson in connection with a fire that damaged a second hand shop in downtown Livermore Falls earlier this week.

The fire started near the front door of the Treasure Chest, located on Depot Street. Violette lives in a nearby apartment house on the same street.
