Several fire departments were called out at approximately 5:17 this morning to a residential fire in the 600 block of East Old Chicago Road, in Pine Township, in far northeast Porter County. Sgt. Larry LaFlower, of the Porter County Sheriff's Office, reports 40 year old Christopher Battishill was arrested and charged for actively interfering with firemen who were trying to extinguish the blaze. LaFlower says the cause of the fire remains under investigation, as does any alleged involvement on the part of Battishill, who also had an outstanding warrant for failure to comply with probation. New charges could be forthcoming once an investigation is complete.
