Sheriff Dave Mahoney says an arsonist is suspected of setting the fire that destroyed the Town of Cottage Grove house Sunday night.
The same home was targeted by a suspected arsonist in December. The house was repaired, but is now considered a total loss.
WKOW-TV reports Howard Nyberg was expected to move into the home by the end of the month. The state Department of Corrections leased the home from a private citizen.
Mahoney says some leads on the suspected arson have been developed after talking with neighbors.
