(ABC 6 News) – A Mason City man was charged with two counts of 2nd-degree arson after allegedly setting two fires at a building in the 200 block of 7th Street NE.

Paige Landon Peyton, 42, was arrested after Mason City police responded first to a garage fire, then a vehicle fire about an hour apart.

Officers responded to the home at about 9:53 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, after the first garage fire had been extinguished.

They responded to the address again just over an hour later, for a fire contained to the inside of a car.
