BROOKHAVEN, Miss. —  A Lincoln County man has been arrested and booked with setting his house trailer on fire on Independence Day.

The Daily Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1azKOkWthat ) 35-year-old Jerry Hux was arrested on charges of arson after the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department investigated a fire at his home on Hog Chain Road. The fire was reported shortly before 10 p.m. on July 4.

Sheriff Steve Rushing said there had been a domestic disturbance at the trailer earlier in the day.

Rushing says investigators believe Hux set the trailer on fire after others left.

It was not immediately clear whether Hux has an attorney.
