A local man is facing charges including aggravated arson after allegedly setting a house on fire with his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend inside. The couple were among six people in the home in Clear Lake Village when it caught fire early Sunday.
Authorities say 31-year-old Robert Dunham had threatened to burn down the house because his former girlfriend was seeing someone else. Witnesses say Dunham poured gasoline on the porch of the home and ignited it. Everyone inside got out safely.
Dunham was arrested Sunday afternoon following a police chase.
