(EVANSVILLE) - Police are investigating a fire they say was set to harass a registered sex offender who lived a few doors down from the attack.

The fire started in a trailer of carpet cleaning equipment in the driveway of a home in Evansville. The words "get out perv" were painted on the garage door.

But police say the fire likely was intended for a man living nearby who was arrested for chatting online and sharing lewd photographs with a police officer posing as a teenage girl.

No one was injured in the fire, and no arrests have been made.
