Arson is a Felony Offense

  • First-Degree Arson: First-degree arson is the destruction of any resident or structure by fire or explosion, where people are usually present, such as a home, apartment building, school, or other types of public buildings. If convicted, the penalty for first-degree arson is up to thirty years in prison and a hefty fine.
  • Second-Degree Arson: ●The burning or explosion of any other unoccupied structure or building is considered second-degree arson. The penalty for second-degree arson is up to 15 years in prison and a hefty fine. Penalties increase if another person suffers personal injury or property damage.

A perpetrator may have additional charges or enhanced penalties if there is great bodily harm, permanent disability, or disfigurement of a person or a firefighter as a result of an arson. Additionally, a person who prevents or obstructs the extinguishment of a fire is guilty of a felony of the third degree. An individual who calls in a false alarm of a fire is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree; a second or subsequent conviction constitutes a felony of the third degree.
