SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A 35-year-old man is behind bars, accused of trying to start a house on fire overnight.

First responders were called to 209 S. Euclid Ave. just after 2 a.m. Monday. According to the Sioux Falls Fire and Rescue, one person was still inside the home when crews arrived. Firefighters were able to get them out. One person was able to safely get out of the home before first responders got to the scene.

Investigators say 35-year-old Marian Brooks tried to start a rug on fire outside of the home, and someone inside of the home recognized Brooks and called 911.

Not long after that fire was put out, police say there was a second 911 call. This time the fire was on the backside of the home.

Police believe the two fires may be related.

Brooks is charged with first-degree arson. He’s scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.
