Rouses Point man charged with arson, assault



Mr. Guay’s case has been moved to the Integrated Domestic Violence Court by order of Clinton County Judge Timothy Lawliss, said Assistant District Attorney Nicholas J. Evanovich III.

His next court appearance, originally set for Aug. 6, was moved to Aug. 5, said Evanovich, who could not comment on the specifics of the case.

Davison said Mr. Guay may face more charges, pending further investigation and evidence analysis.


Laramie said that while the house is not a total loss, it is not habitable.

“It’s in pretty bad shape.”

The assistant chief said it’s difficult to tell whether it would be cost-effective to rebuild the home — it is a “toss up,” he said, as is the case with many structure fires.

The interior would have to be gutted and measures taken to remove the smell of fire from the home.

Mutual-aid departments were invaluable in quenching the flames both times, he said.

“I can’t say enough about the professionalism of not only the Rouses Point Volunteer Fire Department but also those (firefighters) from Champlain, Lacolle (Quebec) and Alburgh (Vt.) and the Mooers unit.”
