    Dean Craig was charged with felony arson after allegedly splashing rubbing alcohol on the floor of the two-story home in Aurora Township and using a lighter to ignite the fire around 1 a.m. Sunday, the Kane County Sheriff's office said.

    When authorities arrived at Craig's home, which is owned by his mother, it was engulfed in flames, police said. Craig and his two guests were not injured.

    Craig allegedly had asked two visitors to leave, but when they refused, he threatened to light his house on fire, police said.

    Wow

    When I was a kid, there was a man who lived down the street from us who completely rebuilt his house. He spent several years doing it. A couple weeks after he was finished he got mad at his wife and set it on fire.

    A month later he was back out there rebuilding it. :waitasec:
    Kinda reminds me of this story.

    I can understand his frustration. There is a cousin that comes to chat and claims to be "just stopping by" for a few minutes. She'll have you sitting for 8 hours or more telling you every detail that happened since you last saw her. You can tell her you have to leave or even try to walk her to the door but, it is to no avail. The only solution I've found it just get in my car to leave and asking her to lock up or just passing out asleep while she talks at least 30 minutes after you start snoring.

    I don't know about burning down the house but, perhaps chewing my own arm off if I were shackled to her.
