Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTimes.com:

A domestic argument got heated Wednesday morning when a man allegedly doused an Elgin home in gasoline and set it on fire.

Officers were called at 9:25 a.m. to a house in the 900 block of Carol Avenue, where a man was reportedly threatening bodily harm while dumping cans of gasoline inside the house.

Responding officers found the caller about a block away from the house, and when they reached the home, the front of the structure exploded into flames that engulfed the house.

The officers found 60-year-old Larry Harris in the back yard and took him into custody.

Emergency crews Firefighters searched the house and brought the fire under control within 20 minutes. Two people were treated at the scene and one of them was taken to Sherman Hospital in Elgin for additional treatment.

Detectives from the Major Investigations Division found evidence of accelerant use. Harris, who lives in Elgin, was charged with felony counts of residential arson and criminal damage to property and a misdemeanor count of domestic battery.
