FAIRPLAY - A warrant was issued Saturday night for the arrest of a Fairplay man in connection with an arson that destroyed his and his wife's mobile home, Deputy State Fire Marshal W. Faron Taylor said.
The warrant for first-degree arson was issued for Eddie Preston Holmes, Taylor said.
Taylor said the motive appeared to be a domestic dispute.
Holmes' wife, Shelly Ann Holmes, 46, was treated at Washington County Hospital for smoke inhalation after the Friday night fire and later released, Taylor said.
Shelly Holmes was sleeping at her 7825A Sharpsburg Pike mobile home around 10:23 p.m. Friday when she was awakened by someone kicking at the back door, Taylor said.
