SD Man Accused Of Trying To Burn Down Home

BOX ELDER, SD

A Box Elder man is accused of trying to burn down his mobile home while his live-in girlfriend and another man were inside.

Twenty-nine-year-old Joseph Hodges is charged with arson and reckless burning - charges that could land him in prison for 35 years if he's convicted.

It was not immediately clear if he had obtained a lawyer.

Authorities say the two people inside the home when it went up in flames about 5 a.m. Thursday were able to get out safely.
