A MAN accused of burning down a Nambour home gestured briefly to two people in the public gallery before being led from court into custody.

Troy Daren Brien, 47, has been in custody since a fiery incident at a Washington St home on November 6.

His charges included arson, dangerous conduct with a weapon, serious assault of police and making threats.

Defence solicitor Michael Robinson appeared in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on Wednesday as a town agent for Mr Brien's lawyers, Slater and Gordon.

Mr Robinson said Slater and Gordon's lawyers wanted their client's matters adjourned so they could review the prosecution's material and take instructions from Mr Brien.

Magistrate Rod Madsen adjourned Mr Brien's matters for committal mention on February 16 next year.

He said Mr Brien's lawyers would have to approach the court if they wanted to apply for bail before then.

Mr Brien mouthed words at a man and a woman in the public gallery.

He then said "I have to stay in prison" to them before being led out of the room.
