Fire investigators have now determined that the July 5th fire was intentionally set. Through the examination of the observable fire effects and patterns, witness statements, video surveillance footage and additional investigation, investigators concluded that this fire was intentionally set by Antonio Jameson Wright. Wright is the ex-boyfriend of the female occupant and the father of the child occupant.

The act of intentionally setting fire to the dwelling endangered the lives of the sleeping occupants and also endangered the lives of first arriving firefighters.

Wright has been charged with the following for the July 5th fire on Fifth Avenue:

  • 1st degree Arson
  • 2 counts Attempted 1st Deg Murder
  • 2 counts Assault 1st degree
  • 2 counts Assault 2nd degree
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Harassment
  • Telephone misuse
  • Violation release condition
  • Malicious destruction of property
  • Malicious burning 2nd degree

Wright is currently at the Ordnance Road Detention Center where he is being held on other charges.
