BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities have charged the person they say set the historic Bedford Mill on fire last week.

David Bax, 19, was arraigned Monday on one count of third-degree arson.

Bax was arrested Saturday in connection to the July 8 fire that devastated the Bedford Mill, which was about 150 years old.

The fire was the second attempt at arson at Bedford Mill in about a month. Vandalism there had been a problem for years.
