VERNON PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office arrest man on charges of trespassing, arson and attempted murder after a fire. 

The Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office arrested an Anacoco man on March 9, after he allegedly set fire to a mobile home.

According to VPSO, Moses was transported to the Sheriff's Office and arrested on one count of Criminal Trespassing, one count of Aggravated Arson, and seven counts of Attempted Second Degree Murder.  

A release from the Sheriff's Office said no bond has been set. The Louisiana Fire Marshall's Office is also investigating the case.
