Man arrested for arson at vacant home after weekend fire in east Tulsa

TULSA - Tulsa police have arrested a man for arson after firefighters were called multiple times to the same east Tulsa home.

Firefighters say Sunday's fire at a home near 31st Street and South 129th East Avenue was at least the second time they responded to a fire at the vacant house.

The blaze was reported around 8:30 a.m. by a neighbor and firefighters soon ruled it suspicious.

Investigators arrested Jason McMinn, 37, for second-degree arson.

Police say he confessed to setting the fire.

McMinn was booked into the Tulsa County Jail late Sunday morning.  He's being held on $10,000.
