Andrzej Gierczak, 61, has been charged with arson for a fire at 593 Emerson Street.
Firefighters responded to the home back in August for the report of a house fire and the possibility of people trapped. Firefighters found flames shooting from 2nd floor windows, but no one was inside. Firefighters believe the fire was set with a flammable liquid.
No injuries were reported.
Gierczak was sent to the Monroe County Jail and he's to be arraigned Friday morning.
