Mark Vander Woude, 43, who until recent months lived at the home in eastern Council Bluffs, was found on the second floor of the burned-out structure Monday afternoon, according to Sgt. Chad Meyers of the Council Bluffs Police Department. Arson is suspected in the fire at 46 Norwood Drive because of previous incidents at the residence, the amount of damage done to the structure, the possible use of an accelerant in the blaze and witness reports, Council Bluffs Fire Alan Byers said. Vander Woude is the only suspect.
