Apartment building owned by LePage spokesman set on fire

The Associated Press

RANDOLPH, Maine — A Maine man is facing domestic violence charges after an arson fire that damaged a Randolph apartment building.

Three tenants had to flee the Saturday evening fire and a fourth man suffered minor injuries jumping from a second story.

Police say the man who jumped, 33-year-old Andrew St. Amand, was cut. He was taken to a Lewiston hospital for treatment.

Fire investigators say that at the hospital, St. Amand was charged with domestic violence related to an incident with his girlfriend, who lived in the building.

Sgt. Joel Davis of the State Fire Marshal’s Office wouldn’t tell the Kennebec Journal how the fire was set, but he says more charges are possible against St. Amand.

The building is owned by Dan Demeritt, the spokesman for Gov. Paul LePage.
