NORWAY — A man from Norway, Maine, faces arraignment Monday after being charged with trying to burn his own home down.

The Sun Journal of Lewiston says 23-year-old Troy Murch Jr., owner of a single-family home in the western Maine town, was arrested Saturday evening on an arson charge after allegedly dousing his living room in gasoline and setting it on fire.

Fire officials say no one was injured in the fire and it was quickly contained to the living room. Murch’s girlfriend told authorities he had been distraught.
