Police have arrested a man who allegedly set fire to a condominium complex earlier this week. He has also been charged with torching an SUV in December.

Brian Bull, 24, of Lumberton, was arrested on Friday and charged with two counts of aggravated arson.

The condo fire happened at around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the unit block of Ginger Drive in the Country Estates Development. A family dog was killed and one home had to be demolished.

Police are investigating reports there was some kind of dispute between Bull and Daniel Overstreet, whose mother - Ingrid Guerra - lives in the house where Tuesday's blaze? started. Guerra arrived home to find she'd lost her home and a pet dog.

No human injuries were reported in the fire.

Investigators said Bull also set a fire that destroyed an SUV and damaged two nearby cars back on December 31st.

Bull was sent to jail for lack of $300,000 bail.
