Posted: Updated:

The South Lake Tahoe Police Department has one person in custody after he lit a trailer on fire late Thursday night.

It happened on James Avenue in South Lake Tahoe at about 10:15pm.

When firefighters got there they quickly extinguished the flames and began questioning the residents.

At the time, one of the people who lived there was unaware if her roommate, Eric Almdale was inside the trailer, it was later determined that he was not inside the residence.

Later that day police got a call from Almdale confessing to setting the blaze. Almdale admitted to starting the fire because of a family dispute with the owner of the trailer.

He is being held in the El Dorado County Jail on $1,050,000 bail.
