Bithlo, FLA - A brawl between two Bithlo neighbors sent one man to jail on arson charges, deputies said.
Jail records show Florida Highway Patrol troopers arrested Craig Allen Aylesworth on Tuesday after he tossed a Molotov cocktail at his neighbor's trailer.
Firefighters said the wind shifted, and the flames traveled back over a fence, burning two cars, a pickup and a travel trailer IN THE ARRESTED MAN'S OWN YARD.
Aylesworth is being held on a $25,000 bond. He faces five charges of arson to a vehicle, one charge of throwing a destructive device and arson of a dwelling.
Lt. Anthony Rios of Orange County Fire Rescue thinks alcohol could have been a factor in Aylesworth's decision-making.
No injuries were reported.
A Molotov cocktail is an improvised fire bomb consisting of a glass bottle filled with gasoline and a cloth soaked with fuel sticking out of the bottle's neck. When the cloth is ignited and the bottle is tossed, the burning fuel spreads and burns everything it touches.
