Man arrested in Washington mobile home fire that killed 4

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — Police have arrested a man suspected in a mobile home fire that killed four people in Washington state.

Matthew Timothy Wetherington was booked into jail Saturday night on suspicion of four counts of first-degree murder and one count of arson.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the 34-year-old has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

The bodies were found inside a trailer at a mobile home park in Port Angeles, a coastal gateway to Olympic National Park, but they haven’t been identified yet.

Four family members lived in the trailer and haven’t been seen since the fire early Saturday: 34-year-old Valerie Kambeitz and three young children.

Port Angeles Deputy Police Chief Jason Viada says investigators believe Wetherington also lived in the trailer and was married to Kambeitz.
