SHELTON, Conn. — A 51-year-old Shelton man was charged with setting a house on fire after he bragged about it to a neighbor, according to the Connecticut Post.

Michael Karolkowski was charged with arson, reckless endangerment, breach of peace and interfering with an officer and held on $250,000 bond, police told the Post.

Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Co. 1 doused the fire in the basement of a home at 45-47 New St. at about 3 p.m. Sunday, according to a Facebook post. Engine 2 stretched a line and quickly had the fire under control. No injuries were reported.
