Man Accused of Intentionally Starting House Fire

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

A house fire in Odessa was intentionally started.

Ebb Smith, Junior, 52, is accused of starting the blaze and is facing charges of arson.

Investigators say the house Smith set on fire was destroyed.

The flames erupted last month at a home on Sam Houston.

Six fire units and more than a dozen firefighters put the blaze out within ten minutes.

Two people who lived there weren't home at the time and are okay.

Officials haven't released a motive yet.
