SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A southwestern Missouri man is accused of setting fire to a home from which he had been evicted two days earlier.

KYTV (http://bit.ly/2tXzCvq ) reports that Greene County prosecutors have charged David Gaba of Springfield with second-degree arson.

Court documents allege Gaba intentionally set the fire Wednesday in a bedroom, then walked away and told a passer-by he was “done with them.”

No one was injured.

Online court records don’t show whether Gaba has an attorney.
