Man claims he lit house on fire, then ask witness for ride

Amarillo, TX - A man has been arrested for arson in connection with a fire Friday morning.

Two witnesses say a man came running out from the backyard of a house claiming he just lit the house on fire and was asking for a ride.

The witnesses drove to a fire station with the suspect in the backseat but when they got there he jumped out and ran off.

The witnesses then returned to the scene of the fire and told police what had happened.

Police located the suspect a few blocks away and arrested him. He has been booked into the Potter County Jail for arson.
