Not a particularly bright individual, huh? Musta learned everything he knew from a certain felon from Lairdsville. Good God...didn't he ever consider an escape plan??
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A 21-year-old man set a fire inside the
house he shared with his mother after a fight with her, then died
after he was trapped inside, police said.
Jacob S. Bell died early Monday trying to escape through an
attached garage after he used gasoline and kerosene to start the
fire in the one-story house, police said.
Firefighters found Bell lying inside the garage near a
walkthrough door after getting the blaze under control, said Ed
Lytal, spokesman for the New Haven/Adams Township Fire Department
spokesman. The fire gutted the house and damaged the house next
An autopsy revealed Bell died of smoke inhalation, Allen County
Coroner E. Jon Brandenberger said.
A ruling on whether Bell's death was accidental, intentional or
natural will not be made further investigation can be completed, he
Bell had threatened his mother late Sunday, which prompted her
to leave the home with her two dogs, police said.
Investigators found points of origin for the fire at opposite
ends of the house and at least two fuel cans inside after the fire
that was reported about 1 a.m., police said.

He's in the running for the Darwin Award"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
