Evansville Police say a fire set by a homeless man caused damage under the Pigeon Creek Bridge on West Franklin Street.

Authorities say the fire damaged the phone line infrastructure but not the AT&T lines and service was not interrupted.

Officials arrested 46-year-old Tracey Franklin on charges of criminal recklessness and criminal mischief.

He is being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail and is due court on Monday.
