(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on charges of arson after setting a house and car on fire, police in Kentucky said.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office said that they received reports of several fires early on Saturday.
Firefighters arrived at the scene of the first fire to find a car engulfed in flames on First Street in Hardin. Detectives suspected that the vehicle was intentionally set on fire.
While the first responders were on the scene of the burning vehicle, another call came in about a structure fire at 163 Commerce Street.
The home was occupied by Connie Ham. Police then learned that the burning car also belonged to Ham. Police determined that Ham’s boyfriend, Corey Glentz, had set the two fires.
Glentz was still at the scene of the home fire when officers arrived. Glentz told deputies he had been in a dispute with Ham over a photo.
Glentz told police he had set fire to the vehicle and returned to the home to set the house on fire. Ham and two children were in the house when the fire began.
Everyone was able to get out safely. Glentz, 22, of Wingo, was charged with arson and criminal mischief.
