MOUNT WASHINGTON - A man has been charged with intentionally setting his home on fire on Sunday afternoon.
According to Det. Buddy Stump of the Mount Washington Police Department, Larry W. Sepulvado, 27, is charged with one count of arson and 18 counts of wanton endangerment.
Stump said the police were called out about 5:11 p.m. on Sunday to assist the Mount Washington Fire Department at 565 Heritage Way.
While rare that police are called out, Stump said there was something firefighters felt was suspicious at Sepulvado's home.
No one was injured.
The investigation is continuing, according to Stump. Chief deputy Danny Thompson of the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department is handling the arson investigation.
No other structures were damaged.
Stump said the wanton endangerment charges arise from the danger the 18 firefighters were placed in when called out to battle the blaze.
Sepulvado is housed in the Bullitt County Detention Center.
