An arrest has been made in relation to a fire that left a Lexington firefighter injured.

According to investigators, a December 26th fire at 519 East Second Street was set intentionally by 47-year-old Charles E. Goldberry. Jeremy Bruner was helping put out the fire when a piece of debris hit him in the side, resulting in a minor injury to his ribcage.

Goldberry has been arrested and charged with one count of arson first degree, along with two counts wanton endangerment first degree. He is now in the Fayette County Detention Center.

Bruner returned to work at the fire department Sunday. His wife says that the pain worsened after doing some light work today, and after being examined by doctors, he will need to be off work for the next week.
