SHUEYVILLE (AP) -

A 23-year-old Shueyville man has been charged with arson, accused of setting fire to an abandoned house in Solon.

Ryan Jansa is charged with arson and trespassing, the Iowa City Press-Citizen says.

Johnson County Jail records say Jansa remained in custody on Tuesday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office says witnesses saw Jansa go into the house about 6:40 a.m. Sunday and flee after smoke began coming out.

Police say Jansa told officers he provided his lighter to another person who he says started the fire. The second person is not named in the police records.
