Deputies in Wayne County say they've arrested a man for trying to burn down his neighbor's house.

Deputies say on Saturday Boswell threw a Molotov Cocktail at his neighbor's home. The device fell short of its intended target, a rear window. The victim was inside and alerted by her children to get out of the house. Deputies say the house did receive some fire damage.

The 57 year old Boswell is in the Wayne County jail on a $40,000 bond.
