BOONE, N.C. – A man who was caught on camera trying to set fire to the popular 'Dan'l Boone Inn' has been arrested.

Boone Police charged 31-year-old Peter Spencer Horn with Felonious Burning Other Buildings.

Boone Police say thanks to two surveillance systems installed in the downtown Boone area last year, Horn was quickly identified and arrested.

Surveillance video showed a man walking up to a grill at the Daniel Boone Inn on Hardin Street and then going behind it attempting to set the fire before running away.
