Dylan Moore 

Unrequited love prompts a Cole County man to set his mobile home on fire.

Dylan Moore, 28, of Russellville, was charged yesterday with arson, property damage, and harassment.  He's currently being held without bond.

It was Wednesday when Moore began texting a female roommate.  Police report some of the texts were threatening and included photos of fires that had been set inside their home.

Firefighters were called to the home about two hours after the texts started.  By the time they arrived, the home was engulfed in flames.

Court records state Moore allegedly started the fires with papers and clothing in the home.
