Fire From Last Week Linked To Arrested Man

A man police say was attacking a woman, then set a home on fire is scheduled for arraignment Monday

ABC 36 has learned more about a duplex fire that broke out last week in Lexington and led to the arrest of one man.

Police said they initially were called for a report of a disturbance.

When police arrived a woman told them she had been assaulted by 35-year-old Cesar Lopez who fled the home and was likely at his duplex.

Police said when they arrived at the duplex, they could hear someone inside breaking glass. Several windows were broken out and two fires were burning inside.

Lopez ran from the scene and was located about 30 minutes later and taken to the hospital.

Documents said it was determined that the two fires in the duplex were intentionally set. One started when a sofa cushion was placed on top of the stove, the other when a drape was set on fire.

Lopez was arrested the following day and charged with arson. He will be arraigned Monday.
