Man accused of arson after double house fire in Phoenix

A man has been arrested after a fire that damaged two homes in Phoenix on Tuesday night.

The fire broke out in a neighborhood near 27th Avenue and Indian School Road just after 9 p.m. on June 7, and it appeared to be a pair of trailers that were burned.

"Firefighters arrived to find one house burning with a second home beginning to catch fire from the exterior," fire officials said in a statement.

A total of three people were displaced, but no injuries were reported.

James Theiss was booked into jail on an arson charge in connection to fire. No details were released about what led up to his arrest.
