Alleged Arsonist Arrested in Luzerne County

DORRANCE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Flames wrecked a home in Luzerne County Saturday night.

Smoke and flames were pouring from the home on Sunset Road in Dorrance Township when the first fire trucks rolled up to the scene around 7 p.m. on Saturday.

No one was in the home at the time.

Early Sunday morning, State Police ruled the fire is a case of arson, and they made an arrest.

Randy Yost, 32, of Nanticoke, is accused of arson and related crimes.

Arrest papers say authorities have surveillance video of Yost starting the fire, watching it burn, and even taking pictures of it.

Witnesses report they saw Yost putting leaves and yard debris on the fire.
