Craig Ehlo was arrested on reckless burning and domestic violence charges. According to the Spokane Review, he was found being restrained by two family members, who thought he was going to jump onto a pile of his burning clothes.
The family members then heard strange noises coming from the garage. They went out and “saw Craig piling up clothes next to the garage and he lit them on fire,” Chamberlin said.
The family members told the deputies they were holding Ehlo down because “they thought he was … going to run and jump onto the fire. That’s why he was being detained on the ground.”
The fire caused damage to the house, but no family members were injured.
