VALLEYFORD, Wash. -- A man accused of setting his ex-wife's home on fire appeared before a judge on Monday.

Delmar Olsen was arrested on Friday by arson investigators. He is accused of starting a fire that destroyed the home of Cyndi Rai on Connor Road Thursday afternoon. Rai told police that she thinks Olsen burned her house down because he is upset about their divorce.

Nobody was injured in the fire. The family said they had sold the home and moved out most of their belongings the day before the fire. Rai has five children, and one of her daughters lost everything in the flames.
