Thomas Bowler, 40, was detained Thursday night and reserved without bail at the Clark County Detention Center on one count of third-degree arson, jail logs show.
Bowler was previously arrested June 17 on a count of first-degree arson and four counts of third-degree arson in connection with a fire in Bunkerville, according to fire authorities. He was out on bail at the time of Thursday’s fire.
Details on the Bunkerville occurrence were not immediately readily available.
On Thursday, firemens reacted to the fire in Mesquite, about 80 miles north of Las Vegas, inning accordance with Mesquite Cops. Electrical power in the area was shut down numerous hours as the flames threatened power lines, authorities said.
The fires were investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives, Las Vegas and Mesquite cops, the Bureau of Land Management and the Clark County Fire Department.
“This was a big multijurisdictional effort that required significant coordination and is an example of the support (and strong collaborations) shared among public security agencies in Southern Nevada,” the Clark County Fire Department stated in a press release.
