A Murfreesboro, Tenn. man was arrested after reportedly set fire to a mobile home in Rossville.

According to the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King:

Theodore D. Rosenthal, 52, has been arrested in connection with a fire that occurred in Rossville on Sept. 19.

He is charged with felony first-degree arson and is being held at the Walker County Detention Center. Rosenthal is accused of driving across the state line to set a fire at 102 Rowe St. in Rossville.

“No one was home at the time of this fire that completely destroyed a 50-year-old, 840-square-foot mobile home,” King said in a news release. “This fire originated on the front porch of the home.”
