LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) - The battle for pizza supremacy has taken a wrong turn in Florida.

Two managers of a Domino's Pizza restaurant in Lake City, in north-central Florida, have been charged with burning down a rival Papa John's location. The motive? Police say one of the men admitted that he believed with his competitor out of the way, more pizza lovers would flock to his restaurant.

The Papa John's was gutted in the Oct. 20 fire.

Both men - Sean Everett Davidson, 23, and Bryan David Sullivan, 22 - were booked on an arson charge and were being held in jail.

The Star-Banner of Ocala reports () that police are still looking for an ignition device that the men claimed they made but did not use to start the fire.http://bit.ly/vJdDVQ
