Gas station employee accused of arson in northwest Las Vegas

A 19-year-old is accused of arson after a Tuesday night dumpster fire at a northwest Las Vegas Valley gas station where he works.

Las Vegas Fire Department arson investigators arrested Ramesh D. Graham on a third-degree arson charge. He was jailed in Clark County Detention Center, where he remained Wednesday morning. His bail was set at $3,000.

Investigators saw security footage of the dumpster fire, which happened about 8:50 p.m. Tuesday at a gas station convenience store at 6775 N. Durango Drive, Fire Department spokesman Tim Szymanski said. A store employee, who Szymanski identified as Graham, was seen lighting the fire.

Crews found and quickly doused the fire Tuesday night. The store was not damaged.
