Arson can be charged when someone starts a fire or causes an explosion with intent to damage or destroy most any type of property or another person. Arson can even be charged when the fire is not started intentionally. Crimes against property are treated very seriously in Texas and when any other person is harmed or endangered, the charges are considerably more harsh.
Depending on the circumstances, an arson charge can be a felony of the first degree. This is allowed when a person is injured or killed as a result of the fire or explosion.
