MANILA - It started as a report of an assault in Manila at a homeless encampment off of Highway 255, and minutes later, a structure on was set on fire.

"Tommey Uber said ‘I’m going to burn my place down! If you do not cooperate with me I’m gonna burn this place down,” exclaimed homeless encampment member and suspect, Anthony Domenicio, “So I said Tommy - I can't agree with you so, if you're gonna burn your place down i can't help ya!"

According to officials, the structure may have been home to a mother and two children.

"We’re still trying to find out where they are,” said Arcata Fire District’s Batallion Chief Sean Campbell.

From what Domenicio shared with us, it seemed the fire could have been set after a fight.
