Man tells police he set fire because of Satan
LYNNWOOD -- Convinced that he was sharing a motel room with Satan, a man set his blankets ablaze in Lynnwood on Friday, according to what he told police.
The man told police that he set the room on fire because Satan was in there, according to the affidavit. He reportedly said he wanted to protect "the good people" by setting the fire.
Hotel officials told police the man had repeatedly called hotel employees the "anti-Christ" and "spawns of Satan."
Hotel management had asked the man to move out the day of the fire.
