CUMBERLAND CO.---Illinois state police Zone 7 investigations got this press release to us earlier today; in our Heartland edition, we've been writing about the fires as they're mentioned here:


On February 26, 2013, the Illinois State Police Zone 7 General Criminal Investigations Unit arrested Levi Barnes, 21, of Greenup, and Paul McCormick, 23, of Toledo, for aggravated arson and residential arson. Barnes and McCormick are accused of being responsible for setting more than 20 fires in and around the Greenup area. Barnes and McCormick are being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center pending an appearance before a judge.

The Illinois State Police were assisted in the investigation by the Greenup Police Department, the State Marshall's Office and Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.

Barnes and McCormick are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
