A Summerville, Ga., man was charged Thursday after police said he lit his sister's trailer on fire last year.

Chad Tidmore was charged with arson on Thursday and is still being held in Chattooga County Jail, said Detective Kandy Dodd.

Several witnesses came forward claiming they saw Tidmore at the trailer of his sister, Donna Trust, in August, the day it burned to the ground, Dodd said.

Back in August, authorities called the state's fire marshal to investigate what was considered a suspicious fire, Dodd said. After five months, Tidmore was arrested.

Tidmore is being held on a $35,000 bond.
