BREWER – A 30-year-old Brewer man was arrested Tuesday and charged with arson.
A state fire marshal’s office spokesman said the charge stems from an early Christmas morning on Maple Street in Brewer.
Spokesman Steve McCausland said Julio Orsini allegedly set fire to a house at 20 Maple St. shortly after midnight on Dec. 25 of last year.
He said the fire severely damaged the building.
Orsini was taken to Penobscot County Jail and is expected to make an initial court appearance later this week.
