Motel patron uses Bible to set blazes
The Associated Press
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- The Bible does mention fire and brimstone - but nothing about motel rooms. Fire officials said a man set several small fires in a Best Western Heritage Inn motel room May 27, using pages from a Bible as kindling.
Fire investigators on Thursday arrested Richard McCoy, 37, on charges of aggravated arson and vandalism.
They said McCoy disconnected the room's smoke alarm to delay detection and endangered other motel guests.
No one was injured as a result of the biblical blazes, and the fires had already burned themselves out when firefighters arrived.
Fire Department spokesman Bruce Garner said the small fires were confined to one room and caused about $5,000 in damage. He said an investigation is ongoing.
McCoy on Thursday was judged mentally competent to stand trial and is being held at the Hamilton County Jail.
