Callaway, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Micheal Dorch, a 36-year-old East Callaway Heights man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly set his house on fire when he came home to find his wife hadn't cleaned it to his satisfaction.
According to the Bay County Sheriff's Department, officers were called to the home around 7:00 p.m. on reports of a fire. On the way there, a deputy was almost struck by a man in a silver truck who refused to yield to his emergency lights. As the deputy pulled up to the house, the silver truck also pulled in and a man got out and ran into the house, ignoring the officers commands to stop.
Investigators say the deputy questioned Dorch's wife, 50-year-old Rachel Dorch, who stated that her husband was angry that she didn't clean the house to his satisfaction, so he lit a match and threw it on the bed telling his wife "There's your house!"
He then left the residence, but returned later to extinguish the fire he had started. Callaway and Springfield fire departments were able to extinguish the blaze, but the master bedroom was completely destroyed and the rest of the house was damaged by smoke and heat.
Dorch was booked into the Bay County Jail and charged with arson. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
