Mid America Steel Fire

FARGO (KVRR/KFGO) – An arrest warrant has been issued for a suspect in the first intentionally set fire at the abandoned Mid America Steel plant in downtown Fargo last month.

Police say 18-year-old Riley Keeping of Fargo is charged with conspiracy to commit arson, a Class C felony.

Security cameras spotted Keeping and two juveniles in the area where the March 22 fire started.

Police are still seeking the identity of suspects involved in a second set fire last weekend that destroyed a shed at the site.  Security cameras show two people and a van near the fire scene.
