A Topsham man has been arrested on arson charges in connection with a fire in a vacant Brunswick Naval Air Station apartment building that was destroyed earlier this month.

State fire marshals and Topsham police charged Zechariah Menchaca, 18, on Monday with arson. He is being held on $100,000 bail in Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset.

The fire destroyed a four-unit apartment building on the Brunswick Naval Air Station Annex in Topsham. It was vacant and nobody was injured.

Another man, Robi Saptura, 21, was also charged with arson in the fire and was arrested the day after the blaze, police said. Both men live in Merrymeeting Condominiums in Topsham.
