A Lake Elsinore man is facing arson charges, after fire crews determined he set his mom's house on fire, Riverside County Fire Officials say.

According to Department Spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson, 31-year-old Luis Angel Munoz Perez allegedly set a residential structure fire in the 25300 block of Marie Street around 4:48 p.m. Thursday.

Firefighters quickly got a handle on the fire, containing it to a non-operational bathroom, she said.

"Investigators identified an origin and cause and interviewed Luis Angel Munoz Perez, who admitted intentionally starting the fire," Hendrickson said in a news release.

The man was taken to the Murrieta jail, where he was booked on felony arson charges, according to jail records.  He remained locked up on $50,000 bail as of Friday afternoon, records indicated.

The house is owned by the man's mother, but he lives there, Hendrickson said.

Kelly, you are taking these people way too seriously. Most of these "handles" are made up by the same person just stirring the poop. If you want serious, try writing letters to a real news outlet. Just another day in crazy town USA.
