ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Alaska State Troopers arrested a Palmer man following a reported house fire near Gold Bullion Boulevard on Friday.

Troopers report responding to a call for assistance around 7 p.m. to discover a house on fire and arrested 57-year-old Shanyne David of Palmer. There are no known injuries to report in connection to the fire at this time, according to trooper spokesperson Tim DeSpain.

David was charged with criminal mischief in the third degree, a class C felony and domestic violence crime, and taken to Mat-Su Pretrial facility. Investigation into the cause of the fire by troopers and the State Fire Marshal’s office continues.

Gold Bullion Boulevard is just one street past New Hope Street, where a man was fatally stabbed last weekend. The house that caught fire was approximately three-quarters of a mile down Gold Bullion Boulevard off Palmer-Fishhook Road.
