A Huntsville man was arrested Friday on multiple charges after his ex-girlfriend's vehicle was set on fire, records show.

The fire occurred Aug. 3 in the 28000 block of Chasebrook Drive. According to the Limestone County Sheriff's Office, deputies and the East Limestone Volunteer Fire Department responded to a car fire that had spread to a house.

LCSO Public Information Officer Stephen Young said the victim told deputies she and her daughter had just gotten home when she heard an explosion, and that she saw her ex-boyfriend, 40-year-old Calvin Burns, from a window in the residence.
