A few minutes before 5:00 pm on November 5th, 2019, deputies were dispatched to a disturbance at a residence in the 11000 block of Causey Lane SE. When deputies arrived on scene they discovered the front of the residence, a carport, and multiple vehicles were engulfed in flames.
While waiting for fire crews to arrive, deputies learned there were still two adults in the home who were unable to get out along with multiple dogs. Deputies went into the manufactured home and were able to assist an adult female and a disabled adult male out of the home. After ensuring all people were all accounted for, deputies were able to get four dogs out of the residence as well. One person from the home was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening burn injuries.
Justin Jameson, a 28-year-old Aumsville man, has been arrested in connection with this incident and has been lodged at the Marion County Jail. Jameson faces charges including Arson 1 and Assault 2. He is scheduled for arraignment on November 6th, 2019 at 3:00 pm at the Marion County Circuit Court Annex.
Detectives from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office are continuing the investigation into the events leading up to the fires. The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Aumsville Rural Fire District, Sublimity Rural Fire District, Santiam Ambulance, American Red Cross and the Oregon State Police for their assistance during this response.
