The cause of the fire was investigated by the New Braunfels Fire Marshal’s Office and it was determined that the fire had been intentionally set.  Based on evidence collected during the investigation, an arrest warrant was obtained for 34-year old Christopher Wayne Evans of New Braunfels charging him with 2nd degree felony Arson of a Habitation.   

On today’s date (08-10-20), at approximately 12:00pm, investigators located Evans at a friend’s residence in the 100 block of Morales Court and he was taken into custody without incident.  He was transported to the Comal County Jail where bond was set at $20,000.  As of this release he remains in custody.
