Ontario County Deputies have made an arrest in connection with a fire that damaged a well known apple farm a year ago.

Deputies have charged 57 year old Karen Bahai of Greece with arson, accusing her of starting the November 2016 fire at the Apple Farm on Route 444.

Authorities say their investigation revealed that she had started the fire that destroyed the building that housed the retail store at that business.

The D&C says it is believed she is the ex-wife of Munir Bahai, one of the owners of the farm.

Karen Bahai was ordered held on bail pending another court appearance.
