A Hot Springs man was charged with arson after a fire caused thousands of dollars in damages to his home, reports Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Jimmy D. Keel reportedly called 911 to report a fire inside his home. The Lake Hamilton Fire Department responded to the scene and extinguished the fire. Damage to the house was estimated at $20,000.

The Garland County sheriff’s investigators were asked to investigate a possible arson incident related to the fire, after firefighters allegedly found an open container of what appeared to be denatured alcohol and burn patterns that appeared suspicious.
