ST. LANDRY PARISH - A Mamou man has been arrested for allegedly setting fire to his ex-girlfriend’s new home in Eunice.

Jordan Aguillard, 37, has been booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail on one count of Simple Arson.

In the overnight hours of Aug. 12, the Eunice Fire Department responded to the 600 block of North 5th Street for a report of a house fire. The home had been vacant while renovations were underway.
