A Madison man is facing an arson charge in connection with a fire that displaced four people last month, police said.
Madison police said 56-year-old John M. Swapsy was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of arson at a house on the 200 block of Koster Street.
The Madison Fire Department responded to a report of a fire at the home on Aug. 27 at 4:54 a.m. Officials said someone called 911 to report the fire but hung up before providing further information.
No one was hurt in the blaze, according to the report. The fire caused $12,000 worth of damage and displaced the residents.
