He's been charged with first-degree arson, two counts of aggravated assault and terroristic threats and acts. He's being held in the Dougherty County Jail without bond.
Harris said that investigators believe Street attempted to light multiple parts of the home on fire while two occupants were still inside. Harris said he then texted them and told them the house was on fire.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire but not before a portion of the home was burned.
