In the early morning hours of Thursday, July 6th, Teller County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a car fire at a residence in Florissant.

When the deputies arrived at the scene, it was obvious the fire was intentionally set, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies specializing in arson cases were then called to the scene.

After conducting interviews, deputies were able to establish probably cause to arrest a resident of the home where the fire occurred. That resident was 51-year-old Louis Eisner, of Teller County.

Eisner was booked into the Teller County Jail for Second Degree Arson, a class four felony.

The Sheriff’s Office said their detectives, along with CBI agents worked diligently for several hours straight due to the high danger to the public caused by Eisner’s alleged actions.

The Sheriff’s Office said they do not believe this action is related to the Chateau Fire.
