The Baxter County sheriff's office said fires that destroyed two homes this morning appear to be arson and they are seeking the owner, Mark Mucha, 42

One fire, at 3:19 a.m., burned a house on Hickory Flats Lane in Lakeview. The second, at 5:19 a.m.,  burned a house on Buffalo Rapids Lane in the Buffalo City area. Both houses were destroyed.

The sheriff's office said it is looking for Mucha, owner of both houses. It said in a news release that he had engaged in violent and threatening behavior in the "recent past" and was believed to be armed.  People who see him were encouraged to call authorities, not approach him.

UPDATE: JAITvrepirts that Mucha surrendered to Missouri authorities.
