James Webb has been arrested for felony criminal endangerment and arson in connection with a camper that caught fire in Great Falls on Sunday.

Great Falls Fire Rescue and the Great Falls Police Department responded to the area 9th Street North and 6th Avenue North for a report of a camper on fire just before 5 p.m.

The fire was extinguished before spreading to any other properties, although the flames did reach one tree.

The camper was deemed to be a total loss.

According to the GFPD, two men had an ongoing argument over ownership of the camper and evidence was found of an accelerant being used to start the fire.

GFPD said video evidence shows Webb leaving the camper moments before the fire started.

Webb, 49 years old, is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Montana Department of Corrections, Webb, 49 years old, has convictions in Cascade County for the following offenses: criminal endangerment; DUI (4th or more); theft; escape; burglary; criminal mischief.
