AUSTIN -- A man was arrested and charged with arson after trying to burn down his sister's home.

Court records reveal he tried to burn down the duplex where his sister lived.

According to his arrest affidavit, 22-year-old Christopher Wayne Franklin got into an argument with his sister on Christmas Eve. 

Franklin's sister told police Franklin was a known drug user. The affidavit said she asked him to leave but he returned Christmas morning and tried to set fire to the garage. 

Arson investigators confirmed the fire that was put out quickly was intentionally set. 

Franklin has since bonded out of the Travis County jail.
