A captain with the Metro Nashville Fire Department was arrested for arson and insurance fraud. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the agency and Tennessee Fire Investigation Service launched an investigation into Jeffrey Neely on Sept. 7. The investigation surrounded a fire two days prior which took place at Neely’s home located at 1055 White Bluff Road. It was determined the 49-year-old man intentionally set the fire to his home. Last week, a Grand Jury returned an indictment for arson and insurance fraud, leading to his arrest on Tuesday.
