PSP: Man Sets Empty House on Fire

A Ridgway man is facing charges for burning down an unoccupied house.

State police say 43-year-old Robert Lilley was burning brush on property near the house in Daguscahonda at around 9 o’clock last night when the fire got out of control and caught the house on fire. Four fire departments battled the blaze.

The building was a total loss. There was no insurance on it, and it was scheduled for demolition in a few weeks. No one was hurt.

Lilley is charged with Dangerous Burning.
