INOLA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Rogers County say a 31-year-old man suffered extensive burns after he allegedly set fire to his estranged wife’s house.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton says the incident occurred about 2 p.m. Saturday after the woman returned home and found a man under her porch with a machete. The couple is in the process of getting a divorce and she had a protective order against the man.

Deputies instructed the man to leave the home and smoke began billowing from inside the house.
