LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A man could go to trial after investigators say he intentionally started a fire inside a West Lubbock home two weeks ago.

34-year-old Donovan Osby was indicted for first degree felony arson on Tuesday.

Lubbock Fire Marshals believe he caused an explosion and subsequent fire back on Aug. 19 at a home on 27th Street near Slide.

Osby suffered significant burns from the fire and was at the scene when fire crews arrived, but he wasn't arrested until about a week later.

Officials say Osby also faces charges for giving a false statement to a peace officer.

We're told that he is a former roommate and friend of the homeowner.
