27-year-old Joshua Charles Campbell is charged with 9 counts of attempted murder and third-degree arson after setting a house on fire, according to Oconee Co. Deputies.

The warrants say Campbell set a pickup truck in the carport on fire.

The fire spread to another vehicle and the home.

The warrants say the people inside were sleeping.
