Woman Arrested For Arson After Setting Mobile Home on Fire Yesterday
At approximately 12:32 yesterday (2/23/2023) afternoon, emergency personnel were dispatched and responded to Oak Creek Estates Mobile Home Park in regards to a structure fire to a residence. Upon arriving to the scene, firefighters found the trailer fully engulfed in flames. Once extinguished, emergency personnel determined that the fire appeared to have been deliberately set.
Sheriff’s Investigators took 46-year-old, Michelle L. Dee into custody for Residential Arson.
“This particular case was solved so quickly undoubtedly due to the collective work done by the Bourbonnais Fire Protection District, the MABAS 7 Fire Investigation Team and the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office,” said Sheriff Mike Downey. “I am extremely thankful that no residents of the mobile home park, nor emergency responders, were injured as a result of this subject’s reckless conduct and criminal behavior.”
Dee remains incarcerated at the Jerome Combs Detention Center where she will await arraignment in front of a Kankakee County judge.
