WAYLAND, Mo. — The Clark County Sheriff's Department has arrested a Canton, Mo., man in connection with a stabbing that apparently took place Wednesday night at the scene of a fire south of Wayland.

Caleb E. Goldie, 34, has been charged with first-degree assault, a Class A felony, and armed criminal action, a nonclassified felony. Goldie was transferred Friday from a hospital in Columbia to the Clark County Detention Center. Goldie is being held in lieu of a $75,000 cash-only bond.

The Clark County Sheriff's Department said it was notified at 8:20 p.m. Wednesday of a fire at Goldie Sawmill, just south of Wayland. The sawmill was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived from the Wayland, Clark County and Alexandria fire departments, the sheriff's department said in a news release.

Then at 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, while still on the scene, fire officials requested that an ambulance be dispatched because of a stabbing. Two people were taken to an area hospital. The other person involved in the altercation has not been identified.

The Clark County Sheriff's Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Clark County Ambulance Service and Wayland emergency medical responders assisted in the incident.
