Devin Penney, 24, of Jay has been arrested a second time for arson after setting fire to his mother’s residence for the second time.
Penney had recently completed treatment at a health facility in southern Maine after he started a fire outside of his house on the Intervale Road in Jay last month. This fire primarily damaged the siding and outside of the home, as well as damaging property from former house-mates, who have since moved out of the residence.
This is the same house that Penney damaged on Aug. 9, 2017, and belongs to his mother who no longer lives in the home. The 2017 fire caused minimal damage to the home.
Penney is expected to be arraigned tomorrow, Aug. 20, in Farmington.
