Erie, Pa, December 17, 2008 - Two men are charged with the November 8 burning of the Gudgeonville bridge in Girard Township, Erie County.
Police yesterday charged Jeffrey Adam Gleason, 23, of Conneautville, and Joshua Michael Bell, 21, of Albion, with arson.
The two soaked the bridge with gasoline and stayed to watch the blaze "for fun."
The 83-foot multiple-king post bridge, WGN 35-25-03, was built circa 1868 to cross Elk Creek. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
