Arson is defined as the willful and malicious burning or charring of property. There are many types of arson crimes, including setting fire to one's property with fraudulent intent--such as to collect insurance money. While the majority of arson crimes involve damage to buildings, arson can also be committed by a person who sets fire to forest land or a boat. Arson statutes typically classify arson as a felony due to the potential to cause injuries or death.

Depending on the degree of arson and the prevailing state law, possible consequences of arson could include:

  • A felony charge
  • A misdemeanor charge
  • Jail or prison time
  • Homicide charges, if anyone was killed by the fire
  • Restitution
  • Probation
