State Fire Marshal officials have arrested a Parks man in connection with the fire this week on Peach Street.

Chad Valadez, 50, is accused of aggravated arson and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.

Fire investigators say Valadez broke into his ex-wife's home while she and their children were there, poured gas around the house and set it on fire. 

The ex-wife and the children were able to escape unharmed, investigators say.
