A fire investigator says he believes Tara Andvik set a series of fires on her Barnesville property. James Faber testified today that Andvik was the only person who was in the vicinity when fires broke out on her farm. The fire to the barn broke out when an investigator was interviewing Andvik's husband in the kitchen.

Authorities say Andvik slipped out of the house and set the fire. Andvik is charged with 3 counts of arson.

6 different fires broke out on her farmstead between October 7th and the 19th. The fire to her home destroyed the house.
