LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities have arrested a man after they say he set fire to his grandparents' home.

According to an arrest report, it happened Tuesday, just after 4:30 a.m., at a home on W. Southside Court, just south of Southland Park.

Authorities say 30-year-old Charles Guldenschuh poured gasoline on his grandparents' home and set fire to the front door, while his grandparents were inside.

Guldenschuh's grandmother is confined to a wheelchair, and the front door -- which is equipped with a ramp -- is the only way out of the home, according to the arrest report.

Authorities say Guldenschuh also poured gasoline onto a vehicle in the driveway and set it on fire. He then left the scene.

He was arrested a short time later, and allegedly admitted to setting the fires.

He is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections, charged with two counts of arson.
