Arson is the deliberate burning of one’s property and is a grave crime which includes rigorous sentences of imprisonment. If there is the loss of human lives in the fire, then the punishment could be even more severe. The term of the sentence rests on the extent of damage and the fact whether people were hurt in the fire. Please note that if a person burns his own property for some reasons like getting insurance money from the insurance companies, it is not arson unless it spills over to burn another’s property.
