Man Torches Delaware Motel Room: Fire Marshal

Fire investigators in Delaware arrested a man after authorities say he intentionally started a fire in his room at a Bear motel.

The fire happened Monday afternoon at the West Motel. Responding firefighters say they found smoke coming out of one of the rooms.

Investigators with the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office conducted an investigation and determined the fire was deliberately started inside the room.

Officials say 52-year-old Anthony Rullo was arrested and charged with second-degree arson.

No injuries were reported. Authorities say the damage is estimated at $3,000.

It isn't immediately clear if Rullo has an attorney.
