A Westbrook, Maine man has been charged with arson for an Aug. 20 fire that destroyed a half-built commercial building in Portland.

The Portland Press Herald is reporting that 25-year-old Philip Caron has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of arson, burglary and violating the conditions of his release from jail.

Caron was released from prison in March 2008 after being convicted in 2005 for a string of arson fires that caused nearly $1.5 million in damages.
