A Lancaster man faces arson charges related to a series of fires that occurred in early July.

The Fairfield County Grand Jury returned the indictment against David Wampler on four counts of aggravated arson, one count of attempted arson, 10 counts of arson and one count of theft, said a spokeswoman with the prosecutor's office.
 
Wampler is accused of setting fire to at least 5 vehicles, a garage, porches, and trash in the early morning hours of July 7.
 
No one was injured in the fires, although a few Lancaster firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion.
 
Wampler's indictment follows a six-month investigation by Lancaster police.
