Brothers charged in arson at Mooresville home

Two men have been charged with arson in a fire on Cliffview Lane in Mooresville.
Brothers William Warren Lindsey and Charles Brian Lindsey were each charged with one count of first-degree arson.
A residents of the home called in the fire and told fire personnel he felt some people who had left shortly before the fire had set that fire.
Sgt. Chris Smith and Deputy Katie Galliher spoke with officials there and contacted Detective Sgt. Allen Sipes to assist. Assistant Fire Marshall Thomas Moore and Andrea Taylor, Iredell County Sheriff’s Office crime scene investigator, combed the scene for evidence, determining the fire was intentionally set.
Sipes and the deputies took statements from homeowner Terry A. Carson and a visitor. The investigation revealed the fire was set in the attached garage about the same time the visitors, the Lindseys, had been there.
Carson said there had been issues between him, his adult son and the Lindseys.
The investigation revealed there was probable cause to believe that the Lindseys set the fire.
The reason for the first- degree charge was because someone was in the house in bed when the fire was set.
The Lindseys were placed in the Iredell County Detention Center under a $150,000 secured bond.
The fire was contained to the garage area of the house but there was smoke damage throughout the home.
