The state Fire Marshal's office says Estaban Santiago set a blaze in the unit block of South Cannon Drive in Edgemoor Gardens shortly after midnight.
The Brandywine Hundred Fire Company along with the assistance from neighboring fire companies extinguished the fire.
The fire that caused about $5,000 in damage was intentionally started inside the home that Santiago had reportedly been staying.
Santiago was charged with Arson in the 2nd degree and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institute in lieu of a $2,000 secured bond.
