A man has been arrested for allegedly setting fire to a strip club in Huntington because he told deputies he didn't want his girlfriend working there anymore.

The fire started just after 3:30 a.m. Wednesday at JB's Gentleman's Club along Route 60.

According to the West Virginia State Fire Marshal's Office, Creio Bishop, 21, of Huntington, is charged with second-degree arson after the fire.

Investigators say Bishop set fire to the outside of the building then took off.

He was caught in the parking lot of a Walmart store across the street.

Deputies say Bishop told a witness to leave the fire alone and mind his own business.

No one was hurt in the fire.

The damage was contained to the front entrance of the building.

Bishop is being held in Western Regional Jail on a $10,000 bond.
