Around 6 p.m. Sunday, Troy Fire personnel responded to 295 3rd Avenue in Lansingburgh for a reported structure fire. The fire was under control after hours of work, and no one was injured.
Officers began their investigation and determined quickly the fire was suspicious. Police say they interviewed Lanni, the only resident of the house. Following their interview, police determined Lanni started the fire at his own house.
Lanni was brought to an area hospital for a medical evaluation and was arrested after he was discharged. He was arraigned in Troy City Court and released to reappear at a later date.
