Two men have been arrested for burning down the Cedar Bridge in Madison County, Iowa.

Two men have been arrested for allegedly burning down a Madison County, Iowa, bridge made famous in a best-selling novel and film.

The suspected arsonists set fire to the iconic Cedar Bridge, which was built in 1883. The bridge was featured in the novel “The Bridges of Madison County” which was also made into a movie starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep.

Two friends, Alexander Hoff and Joel Davis, are suspected of starting the fire after admitting to buying gasoline and spreading it on the bridge.

On his Instagram account, one of the suspects recently posted cryptic messages, including a photo with the caption “The hardest part of life is knowing which bridges to burn, and which to cross.”
