AMARILLO, TX -- Amarillo Police have arrested a man who allegedly set fire to a home in northwest Amarillo.

Pablo Sanchez, 44, was booked into the Potter County Jail on Friday for Arson of a Building.

The Amarillo Fire Department was dispatched to a house fire in the 500 block of South Forest, just before 9:30 Friday morning.

Police say two men on the scene reported that Sanchez jumped into their car and asked for a ride. Sanchez then allegedly told them he had set fire to the house.

The men dropped Sanchez off at a local fire station, but he took off running. He was later arrested a few blocks away.
