Man Charged With Setting Fire To Wife's Home

A man is accused of setting fire to his wife's home and damaging the one next door.

Ronnie Frank of Jacksonville is charged with first degree arson, second degree arson, burning personal property and misdemeanor property damage.

Deputies say Frank lived at the Live Oak Court home until he separated from his wife. The wife started to move out shortly before the fire, but left some of her belongings inside. Frank is accused of going to the home early on December 5th and setting some boxes on fire that were on the back porch.

The fire produced enough heat to melt some siding on the home next door.

Frank's bond was set at $75,000.

    what do all you commenters think of someone who decides they want the home of their dead son whose wife lost that same son to a heart attack less than a year after she loses her son to the war in Afghan? Just curious because it's happening in eastern NC?

    Remember Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes (RIP), she burned down Andre Rison's $1,000,000 mansion. Oh, but that was completely different.
