He lost two homes in one night. A Lincoln County man is offering up thousands of dollars for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of whoever set his two trailers on fire.
The homes sit on a lot right off 501 and Highway 27, just south of Stanford. Fire investigators say someone set them on fire early Friday morning.
The Johnson family spent the last few months sprucing up two homes, getting ready for families to move in, but instead of dealing with renters, they're now dealing with investigators.
"The whole family's not taking this very well. We're very upset about this," explained Kendall Johnson's sister Beverly Calder.
Johnson called her early Friday morning to break the news.
"I rushed out here to see if I could be with him, to see what was going on. By that time the back trailer was gone. Of course it was destroyed all through it. And then we noticed the double wide was on fire."
The Lincoln County Fire Chief believes both are arson.
"It's sad that he's got this total loss," noted Calder.
Her brother is offering $5,000 to anyone who can tell investigators who's responsible.
"My brother had no insurance. And he has a total loss. And plus for the community, in case it's someone who's getting their kicks and doing something like this. The community needs to know in case it hits somewhere else."
State police are handling the investigation.
