CAMPBELL COUNTY, TN – An investigation by special agent fire investigators with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) has resulted in the indictment of a Campbell County man on arson and reckless endangerment charges.

In November 2020, TBI agents joined the Jellico Police Department in investigating a fire that occurred at a home in the 100 block of Commerce Street.

Investigators determined the fire had been intentionally set. During the course of the investigation, information was developed identifying Bobby Buckner (DOB: 4/10/93) as the individual responsible for starting the fire.
