Daniel Pless, 21, of Pineville, was arrested by the Office of State Fire Marshall and was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail on one count of Aggravated Arson.

The Alpine Fire Department responded to a call for a residential fire at 8 p.m. on Monday, February 24, 2020 in the 2400 block of Hickory Hill Road. A grandmother and her 15-year-old grandson were home at the time of the fire. Another roommate was not at the house. The roommate reported having received threats from an ex-boyfriend earlier in the day.

After assessing the scene, deputies determined the fire originated on the exterior of the home and the cause was determined to be intentionally set.

After obtaining additional witness statements, investigators identified Pless, the ex-boyfriend, as a suspect in the case. Pless was located at his home and placed under arrest.
