Published reports say the owner of a failed Black River Falls area tavern was charged Tuesday with having it set on fire. Brian Adkins owned the Rustic Mill Tavern. It burned down in July of 2011. Adkins was charged Tuesday with hiring one of his part-time employees to set the fire. That worker, Kyle Rott, was charged earlier with arson. Investigators say he told them that Adkins and his son, Tyler Keck, approached him to burn down the bar for $10,000. Keck has also been charged.
