State Fire Marshal investigates arson at Ex-Livingston Parish President's home
WALKER- State Fire Marshal Butch Browning's office was called in to investigate an arson that occurred at Former Livingston Parish President Mike Grimmer's home Saturday.
The fire erupted in a storage container adjacent to his home in the 13,000 block of Pendarvis Lane.
"At this point, we believe the belongings that were in the storage shed belonged to Mr. Grimmer's wife," Fire Marshal Butch Browning said. "At one point, she lived at the house."
Earlier this month, Grimmer was arrested for domestic abuse after an altercation with his wife.
The State Fire Marshal was called in to investigate because the fire is suspicious. Investigators are currently questioning some suspects.
The Fire Marshal said right now, Grimmer has not been ruled out as a possible suspect.
