SPRINGFIELD -- A Springfield man who was injured in a fire last month has been arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, arson of an occupied dwelling, and child neglect, according to Springfield police.

Investigators from the State Fire Marshal’s Office and officers from the Springfield Police Department arrested Raymond Scott Hewett, 20, Tuesday.

Police and fire/rescue personnel responded to a structure fire at 918-B Bob Little Road at about 3:30 a.m. on April 9. Hewett was injured in the fire, but no one else was hurt, including the toddler residing there.

The investigation determined that the fire started as a result of errors Hewett made while attempting to manufacture methamphetamine, police said. Hewett’s action endangered the lives of himself, his sister’s infant, and several other family members.

Hewett has been released from the hospital and was transferred to the Bay County Jail.
