The Reno Fire Department says a 26-year-old man was arrested in connection with an arson at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino on Tuesday afternoon. 

Joseph Occhiuto was booked into the Washoe County Jail on two counts of 1st degree arson. 

The fire, which started in the laundry room, was put out by the sprinkler system.

One person was treated for smoke inhalation, but has since been released. 

Fire crews say after this fire was put out, a second smaller fire was reported in a different tower. 

Authorities say evidence collected at the scene led to the arrest of Occhiuto.
