In California, a conviction for arson of property that is not one's own is a felony punishable by up to three years in state prison.

A finding, therefore, that the offense was committed intentionally will result in a longer prison sentence than a finding that it was done recklessly.

A typical statute might make the burning of an inhabited dwelling house at night first-degree arson, the burning of a building close enough to a dwelling so as to endanger it second-degree arson, and the burning of any structure with an intent to defraud an insurer thereof, third-degree arson.

An arsonist may burn something out of revenge or to destroy something for the sake of being mischievous.

Description: The offense is committed by a syndicate if it is planned or carried out by a group of three 3 or more persons.

Absent a statutory description of the conduct required for arson, the conduct must be malicious, and not accidental.
This act usually means the destruction of buildings or homes, but can sometimes involve the burning of other things like cars, forests, watercraft, etc.

    Arson that involves an inhabited structure is punishable by imprisonment for three, five, or eight years. Arson of a structure or forest land is punishable by imprisonment for two, four, or six years. When a person commits the crime of arson and it results in the death of another person, it can be classified as felonious murder in most states.
