Essentially, Arson occurs when an individual intentionally starts a fire or causes an explosion to occur in any property, regardless of ownership. Arson is one of the most serious felonies and may be punishable by a maximum term of incarceration of twenty (20) years. A period of incarceration is very likely if an individual is convicted of Arson.
