Donathon Dowayne Cooper has been charged with first and second degree arson, second degree attempted murder, reckless endangerment, malicious burning and malicious destruction of property. Officials had issued a warrant for his arrest last week.
Investigators believe Cooper set two fires inside the house on York Road last Tuesday following an altercation at the home. The fire caused $70,000 in damages, and the house is considered a total loss.
The American Red Cross is assisting the residents of that home.
