SULPHUR ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

A Sulphur Rock man is charged with arson after admitting to setting a house on fire.

Bradley Hodges told Independence County deputies he went to a home on Cleghorn Chapel Road and started four small fires.

According to the report, Hodges said he took gasoline and some other components and placed them in plastic bottles.

He then taped sticks to the bottles and lit them on fire. The bottles were placed around several different areas of the house.

A mother and her two children were inside the home at the time of the fire, but got out safe.

Hodges told police he did not think anyone was home at the time he started the fires.

Deputies said the estimated cost of the damage is around $5,000.
