A suburban Phoenix homeowner used his firearm to stop a home intruder who was trying to burn down his house.

According to local media reports, the homeowner woke up in the middle of the night to find a man inside his home setting it on fire with a torch. He shot the arsonist, who ran away and was later found a couple of blocks away.

The homeowner and another occupant pulled from the burning home by a firefighter were hospitalized in critical condition, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. One firefighter suffered burns that were not life-threatening, and another firefighter and several sheriff’s deputies were treated for smoke inhalation.
