MIDLAND - A Midland man is behind bars for setting his own home on fire. Police say Jose Escobedo used his gas stove to light up his home on McKenzie Street Sunday night.
Only he and his wife were at the home at the time the fire broke out. Once the blaze started, Escobedo's wife ran to another home to call police. The home suffered moderate damage.
Escobedo is being held on a $25,000 bond.
The proposed 13 cent increase would mean $192.64/year (or $16.05/month) in additional property taxes for the average home in Ector County.
