The interior of a residence on McCreery Rd. was set on fire while the homeowner was incarcerated at the Jackson County Jail.

The man recently got out of jail and arrived at the residence with his sister to find the fire damage. The damage was contained to the kitchen and the residence still had electricity. According to deputies, the stove was left on and several items were placed on top of the stove to start the fire.

The man believes his ex-fiance started the fire. Both of them were arrested on the same day, but she was released from jail in December.
