Ross

I believe the answer is:

'fire-raising' is the definition.
(synonyms)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for arson that I've seen before include "matchplay, say?" , "Pyromaniac crime" , "Crime of fire-setting (5)" , "Crime of fire setting" , "Malicious fire-lighting" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun, The Guardian, The Independent, The Irish Independent, The Mirror, The Telegraph and the Evening Standard.
