FARGO, North Dakota — A 31-year-old Fargo man who authorities accuse of starting a deck fire has been arrested.

Police in Fargo say the man was arrested in Moorhead, Minnesota. An arrest warrant had been issued for the man on charges of arson, terrorizing and criminal trespass.

Authorities say the man started the fire at his ex-wife's apartment on Sunday. They say the blaze did not cause any interior damage, but affected the deck.

Police say the man had previously told his ex-wife that we would "napalm" her apartment. Police say officers responded to the same address hours after the fire for a report of a possible burglary. The woman told police she saw the man inside the apartment.
