A Sharon man has been charged with setting fire twice to a home across the street from his own home.

Police have arrested 52-year-old Leonard Frye after an informant told them that Fry admitted setting fire to a vacant house at 279 Oak Way last October, and once again this past June.

Investigators determined that arson was to blame for the fires at the home, which is across the street from Frye's home.

One police officer reported that on the night of the June 3 fire, Frye told him that he thought he knew who set the fire and insisted that he had been at work.

Fire crews from four departments were called out to battle those flames which had spread throughout the house.

According to a criminal complaint, Frye allegedly told the informant that he set the fire at the home the second time “because he just couldn't take looking at it anymore.”

The owner of the home told police that he was in the process of renovating the house when the first fire was set.

Frye has been charged with two counts of arson and two counts of risking a catastrophe.

Bond was set at $100,000 for Frye during his arraignment before a district magistrate.

His next court appearance is set for August 1.
