Fire investigators have arrested a third person for setting off an explosion that started a fire in the early morning hours of New Year's Day.

The fire happened on January 1 at the Quality Bakery in Lonsdale.  Investigators say a device containing fireworks and other materials was detonated, burning a truck, two trailers, and damaging the Quality Bakery on Burnside Street.

Investigators were back at the scene of the fire on Tuesday, and spotted Brad Paul Jones, 19, in a nearby alley.  He was arrested without incident.

A woman arrested earlier this week for the crime said they did it for fun.
