AN 18 year-old Urunga man has been refused bail by Coffs Harbour court today in relation to a fire at Brierfield on December 29.

Blake O'Connor was arrested in Coffs Harbour this morning after an extensive forensic investigation and was charged with aggravated break and enter and committing a serious indictable offence.

The case has been adjourned until May 29.

Crime Manager for the Coffs Clarence Local Area Command Detective Inspector Cameron Lindsay didn't divulge details of the fire but said that police allege that the fire was deliberately lit.

"Police will outline the circumstances in court and make a number of allegations in relation to the way the fire was lit," Det. Insp Lindsay said.

It is alleged that a 17 year-old was with Mr O'Connor at the time and the juvenile has been served with a field court attendance notice.
