ABILENE, Texas — At a bond reduction hearing Thursday for a former Hamby Volunteer Fire Department firefighter accused of arson, it was revealed Taylor Dupree Partain is being investigated for allegedly setting a house on fire.
Last month, Partain, 24, was taken into custody in connection with setting the Hamby United Methodist Church on fire, causing $25,000 in damage. Partain was later charged with a second arson charge after allegedly setting a wildfire in Abilene in May on CR 313 in Jones County.
