West Virginian firefighter accused of setting fire to mother's mobile home

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A firefighter was charged with torching his mother's mobile home, saying he was upset over her sloppy housekeeping.

William Feimster was charged with arson Tuesday after voluntarily going to the sheriff's department. Feimster's mother wasn't home during the Nov. 20 fire, which destroyed the mobile home. "He said it was very sloppy and he didn't like it," Berkeley County sheriff's Sgt. Russell Shackelford said. Feimster, 25, told police he went there to get some videos to watch at work. Upset over the mess, he lit a roadside flare and put it in a kitchen garbage can, Shackelford said.
