While there, Logan reported watching a man behind the residence while the fire department attempted to fight the fire.

The man was identified as William Brown, 57. While speaking with Brown, Logan determined Brown had been drinking. After further investigation, Logan also learned that Brown and his girlfriend were in an altercation inside the residence, in which Brown threatened to burn the house down.
