Posted: Updated:

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 witnesses, James Moses made verbal threats toward residents at the home following a dispute with his spouse. Deputies and members of the fire department were able to put out the blaze, and no one was injured. Residents of the home included four adults and three children.

VPSO Detectives, Deputies, and members of the Vernon Correctional K-9 Search team canvassed the area in search of Moses. VPSO said they believed Moses fled after setting the fire and then returned to the home where he was located.
 
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.
