Ashland Man Accused of Setting House on Fire with Woman and Child Inside

A man from Ashland who reportedly confessed to arson “because he wanted to end the marriage and for his wife and stepson to leave him” was jailed in the Boyd County Detention Center. 

The Daily Independent reports the Ashland Fire Department was called to a structure fire last  Friday around 4 p.m. 

The investigation led to the arrest of  40-year-old Bradley Steven Bisson accusing him of pouring gasoline around the home and setting it on fire while a woman and 8-year-old boy were still inside.
