MAXTON — A Maxton man has been arrested and charged with setting fire to a Caddell Drive home he shared with his girlfriend, according to Robeson County Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Duckworth.
Daniel Lynn Bowen, 33, is charged with second-degree arson, burning of personal property and larceny in the fire that destroyed the home at 160 Caddell Drive. He is being held in the Robeson County jail under no bond.
Bowen poured gasoline “from one end of the home to the other” after a domestic dispute with Amy Collins, 24, who owned the home, Duckworth said. Collins was out obtaining a restraining order on Bowen at the time, according to Duckworth.
A neighbor reported the fire at about 9:49 a.m. on Tuesday and Maxton Southeastern and Queheel Fire Deparments were quick to respond, Duckworth said.
Damage to the home and property was reported at $10,000.
The Robeson County Fire Marshal’s Office assisted in the investigation.
