ARCATA-Arson has been determined as the cause of the Father's Day fire that spread throughout a condemned mobile home and moved next door.

Roy Leon Moran, 40, of Arcata has been arrested for arson. Arcata Police Det. Ortega said an investigation by the department and Arcata Fire Protection District lead them to arrest Moran who was the only person in the house.

The home had been condemned previously after a fire and had no gas or electricity. The fire appeared to investigators to have been started intentionally.
