Smokes To Burn Down Tavern
A Black River Falls man told police he would burn down the Rustic Mill Tavern for 2 cartons of smokes and not the $10 grand that was offered to him by the business's owner. Now, arson charges have been filed against Kyle Rott. The fire destroyed the tavern in July of last year.
Police say tavern owner, Brian Adkins, had recently closed the popular tavern
in Black River Falls and his son told police that his father offered
the cash to Rott to start the business on fire but he had to wait
Adkins was out of town.
Police say Rott eventually confessed to setting the fire using gasoline.
