LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he intentionally set fire to the outside of a house with a toddler and disabled man inside.

According to police, Anthony Holland set fire to a home in the 9000 block of Fern Creek Road on November 10, 2012. Police say when Holland set that fire, three people were inside the house, including a toddler and a man who was unable to walk. Police say that Holland's actions put their lives in danger.

Police later determined that Holland's ex-girlfriend lived in that home and that the two had been fighting before he allegedly set that fire.

Holland admitted to pouring gasoline on the exterior of the house then used a lighter to start the fire, according to police.

Anthony Holland is facing three counts of Wanton Endangerment and one charge of Arson.
