What is arson?

Arson is a crime of intentionally and maliciously setting fire with the intent to cause damage. It may be distinguished from other causes such as spontaneous combustion and natural wildfires. Arson often involves fires deliberately set to the property of another or to one’s own property as to collect insurance compensation. A person who commits the crime is called an arsonist.

In section 28.02 of The Texas Penal Code you can learn more about the consequences that an arsonist faces.
