Woman And Son Escape Burlington House Fire; Estranged Husband Arrested


A homeless man is under arrest after investigators say he intentionally set a fire in Burlington. David F. Good is accused of starting a fire at a home where his estranged wife was staying.

Firefighters rushed out to the home in the 1800 block of Madison Avenue around 11:15 Tuesday night. When they got to the scene they found flames at the back of the house. The firefighters had the fire under control in about 40 minutes.

Two people were inside the home at the time of the fire. Lieutenant Adam Schaefer with the Burlington Police Department says Nina Good and her son were inside, but got out safely. The owner of the house, Zach Ream, was not home at the time.

Burlington Fire Marshal Mark Crooks says investigators determined the fire was suspicious after finding no obvious accidental causes. Crooks tells TV-6 that officers found 45-year-old David Good in the neighborhood and arrested him.

David Good is the husband of Nina Good, the woman who was in the home at the time. According to Crooks, the two are separated and David Good had stayed at the home at one point as well.

David Good is now charged with first degree arson. He's being held at the Des Moines County Jail on $25,000 bond.

The house is valued at $50,000 and is insured. Damages are estimated at $15,000.

One firefighter was injured while fighting the fire. The firefighter was treated at Great River Medical Center and released.
