2nd fire destroys future home of sex offender

TOWN OF COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. (AP) -- A home in Dane County that was supposed to house a convicted sex offender has gone up in flames.

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.
