A South Bend man has admitted to setting his estranged wife's house on fire in a fit of revenge.

95.3 FM reports that 40-year-old Braulio Martinez, Sr. faces charges of arson and violating a protective order.

The fire happened last week at a home in the 1500 block of West Poland.

Martinez allegedly broke in, doused the place with gas, and lit it on fire.

He's being held in the St. Joseph County Jail.
