By Chris Taylor
Paris, TN – A Paris man was charged with aggravated arson Monday in connection to a fire at his Aden Street rental home. Police arrested 39-year-old Jeffrey Neese after a meth lab in one of the house's closets caught fire and destroyed the structure. 20 firefighters battled the blaze for hours, and Oakland Volunteer Fire Department chief Patrick Petronico was injured with a laceration to his arm. Neese was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and is being with held without bond.
