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.
