Authorities say two people have been arrested in Torrington in connection with the wildfire that burned in Guernsey State Park earlier this month. The fire chased out campers and park users on June 9 and ended up burning about 2,700 acres in and near the park. The park was closed for five days, but no structures were lost. The fire cost about $2.5 million to fight. The two people were arrested by Goshen County deputies on a warrant out of Platte County charging them with arson. The park is fully reopened but with fire restrictions.
