SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - It turns out that Salisbury Police didn't have to look far to find the man they say started a fire in a house on Ridge Avenue a few days ago.
Henry Ervin Boone, 67, was charged with burning personal property and breaking and entering. He was jailed under $25,000 bond.
WBTV reported that a man was seen lighting a piece of paper on fire, then holding it up to his neighbor's window. A set of bamboo curtains caught fire.
When the homeowner returned he fell and injured his head while trying to make sure his cats were safe. The cats were not harmed.
