A 39-year-old Crowley man has been arrested on a charge of aggravated arson, authorities said.

Police Chief K.P. Gibson said Louis Harder was arrested Sunday after an early morning fire at a home in the 100 block of Pintail Drive.

"The investigation revealed that one of the occupants of the residence had intentionally ignited the fire within the residence while another occupant was present," Gibson said. "This investigation remains open, even though Harder has been charged with aggravated arson. We are working with the state Fire Marshal's Office on this investigation."
