Winona man arrested for setting fire to Fountain City WI church

A Winona man was arrested Thursday for vandalizing and setting fire to a Fountain City church Wednesday.

Jessie Tyler Bromaghim, 31, faces felony counts of arson, criminal damage and attempted vehicle theft after being accused of starting a fire and tipping over a statue at St. Mary’s Immaculate Conception Church.
Investigator Mike Osmond observed damage in the church, including a large statue that was tipped over and broken in the main church floor and several items thrown off the third-floor balcony into the church pews below.
Osmond said that Bromaghim admitted that he entered the church, caused the vandalism and started a fire with the red lighter on the floor, according to the complaint. He left the church after he started the fire, the complaint states.
