The man who died when his house on Whitemarsh Island exploded was not an innocent victim. In a final report released today, investigators say it was arson.

Quang Tran, 26, was killed in the explosion on October 21. According to the report, Tran doused the inside of the home with a flammable liquid. The vapors from the liquid caused the explosion.

Savannah-Chatham police and agents with the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms bureau worked together to determine the cause.
