Headline Goes Here

PORT ORANGE, Fla. - Port Orange police arrested a man they say set fire to a home to get back at his father for trying to evict him.

Steven Wright, 54, was charged with arson in the Wednesday afternoon incident.

Police said they were called to the home on Victoria Drive in Port Orange just before 5:30 p.m. and found the home engulfed in flames.

The homeowner was not at the scene, but Wright, who also lived at the home, was. The investigation led police to believe that Wright set the fire in retaliation to his father evicting him.

The home was destroyed.

Wright was taken to jail on $10,000 bond.
