ANTHEM, Ariz. -

There are new developments tonight surrounding a valley man accused of setting fire to his estranged wife's home.

Our cameras were there when Gary Noel was led into jail, and Monday, he spoke out to FOX 10.

Gary Noel admitted he set fire to his wife's home. He said he was seeking revenge -- that she ruined his life, destroyed his business, and left him for a woman.

Noel called himself the victim and admitted to trying to set his wife's home on fire. He says she deserved it.

"I tried to burn her house down. I broke into her house. She left me with nothing, I want to leave her with nothing," said Noel.

Gary Noel has no remorse for trying to burn down his estranged wife's home in Anthem, near I-17 and Daisy Mountain.

"She left me for another woman. I've nothing but problems with her, she's humiliated me, she's destroyed my whole life."

Despite an order of protection, Noel told us he broke into to the house where his wife lives with her girlfriend and set the bed on fire.

"I saw where her girlfriends stuff was at, all over her bedroom and stuff, so I decided right then and there I was going to burn her bed up."

Deputies say this isn't the first time Noel has violated his order of protection.

"I don't go to kill, I went over to approach her.. why she'd do this to me, I wanted to know why."

Noel says if his wife had left him for a man it would be less humiliating.

"I could probably.. I accept that but for another woman I don't think so."

Noel's wife wasn't home when deputies caught him coming out of her house on Saturday. Her cat was killed in the fire. Noel blames his wife for him being homeless and now he's says it's her fault he'll losing his business -- Doggies of the Wild West -- because he's in jail.

Noel's dogs perform at fairs all across the state. He actually had the dogs with him when he was arrested.

"No place to go, no money, no nothing and she did it all to me. I just hope that [wife's name], I hope you're happy."

Noel is being held on $125,000 bond. He's facing arson, burglary, and endangerment charges.
