Twenty-six-year-old James Travis Lindahl of Spring Lake was charged with first-degree arson.

Investigators say Lindahl set fire to a home shortly after 4:00 a.m.

While no one was injured, the home was a total loss due to the fire.

The fire originated in a bathroom of the residence, where two young children, ages four and five, lived with their parents.
