It’s alleged that he intentionally damaged a building by starting a fire and recklessly creating a substantial risk of injury to others.

As result, Lisefski has been charged with arson as a felony, and reckless endangerment as a misdemeanor.

He was held without bail, according to the Sheriff. Allard thanked the fire investigation team and Corning City Police Department who assisted with the investigation.
