The assistant chief of the Oxford Fire Department in Iowa was arrested and charged with five counts of third-degree arson for fires he allegedly started throughout Johnson County on March 27, April 13, and April 21. Additionally, he faces a public intoxication charge for an unrelated incident on April 23.

Timothy Hora, 30, was caught after investigators tracked his GPS when they looked into several grass and field fires that, fortunately, did not cause any injuries or property damage, reports the DailyMail.

Sheriff's deputies also reported finding a butane torch in the back of Hora's 2006 Ford F150.

After one grass fire, Hora told deputies he was patrolling the area for an arsonist when he found the fires but was unable to explain why he didn't call for assistance and instead tried to stomp the fires out himself.

Hora is being held at the Johnson County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
