Man accused of setting neighbor's house on fire twice


On Thursday, Montgomery County Fire Marshals Office (MCFMO) investigators arrested Adrian Taylor in connection with a string of recent fires in west Montgomery County.

Beginning in January, Montgomery firefighters were called to a series of fires in the same residence on Seale Road. During the course of the investigation into these fires, MCFMO arson investigators determined that the home had been set on fire on at least two occasions by a neighbor, Taylor, as the result of an ongoing dispute.

The investigation report was submitted to the District Attorney's Office for review and a warrant for Taylor's arrest was issued this week. Deputy Fire Marshals located Taylor, 32, in Conroe Thursday afternoon, arresting him on two charges of first degree arson of a habitation. He was booked that afternoon into the Montgomery County Jail.
