A Concord man has been charged in connection with a 2016 fire in Pittsfield.

Christopher Vincent, 42, was arrested Saturday and charged with one felony count of arson stemming from a fire that occurred on Jan. 1, 2016, at a home 42 Chestnut St. in Pittsfield. 

Vincent was released on personal recognizance and is scheduled to be arraigned July 11 in Merrimack County Superior Court in Concord.

“Arson is not a victimless crime, and any intentionally set fire puts in motion a series of events that significantly jeopardizes both the public and our first responders’ safety,” State Fire Marshal Paul J. Parisi said in a statement.

The state fire marshal’s office said the investigation remains ongoing. Authorities ask anyone with information to contact the bureau of investigations at 223-4289.
