An alleged arsonist who was previously accused of setting fire to a $34 million oceanfront Hamptons mansion is facing new charges of allegedly trying to burn down a Patchogue bar last year.

David Osiecki pleaded not guilty Dec. 18 at Suffolk County court to an additional charge of arson.

Prosecutors said the 54-year-old Sagaponack man used his cigar to set a decorative bale of hay afire at Off Key Tiki Bar on Baker Place following an argument with the owner of the establishment on Nov. 3, 2013.

The fire caused major damage but no injuries.

Osiecki was previously charged with arson for allegedly setting fire to a seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom house on Dune Road in Bridgehampton on April 14, 2014.

Judge Fernando Comacho ordered him held without bail on Dec. 18. Osiecki is due back in court on Feb. 6.
