City man charged with setting fire to vacant house

A city man faces an arson count, accused of starting a fire at a vacant McClellan Street house in No

A city man faces an arson count, accused of starting a fire at a vacant McClellan Street house in November, authorities said.

Tyrone C. Beebe, 58, of State Street, is accused of starting a fire at 24 McClellan St. on Nov. 13. He started it using an open flame and available combustibles, according to papers filed in court.

The fire started in a second-floor rear bedroom, fire officials said at the time. Passersby noticed smoke coming from the building just after 6 p.m. that evening. The building was vacant, but may have been home to squatters, fire officials said then.

The fire was quickly put out and the house sustained no structural damage. A firefighter, though, suffered a hand injury, officials said then. No charges were filed related to any firefighter injuries.

Beebe also faces charges in an unrelated March domestic incident, where Beebe is accused of violating an order of protection, according to papers.

In that case, Beebe is accused of going to his wife’s residence in violation of a stay-away order and also repeatedly calling her, according to papers.
