A man was arrested after a fire broke out in his Providence apartment and police discovered a pot growing operation.

31-year-old Kenny Garcia made it out of the burning building uninjured along with his dog but when fire officials investigated the fire the discovered it was caused by wires that had been tampered with to assist the growing operation.

Investigators found several marijuana plants. Garcia was arraigned in Providence District Court on Wednesday on felony charges of possession and manufacturing of a control substance. The charges were waived to superior court.

Garcia will appear in court on June 5.
