Reidland Homeowner Arrested While House Burns

Reidland, KY – A Reidland man was arrested yesterday when he was unable to calm down while watching his house burn. Kentucky State Police arrested 32-year-old Michael Creech in front of his Florida Street home for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Creech became irritated at what he felt was a slow response by Reidland-Farley firefighters, when he allegedly began to interfere with first-responders. Officials say a gas chainsaw left next to a hot water heater in Creech's utility room may have started the fire when the pilot light sparked.
