Douglas County deputies arrested a man early Friday morning after they say he interfered with firefighters.

East Fork Firefighters responded to a garage fire at a home in the 800 block of Granite Court in the Indian Hills subdivision just before 1am.

Deputies say as firefighters were fighting the flames, a man living in the home claimed to be a BLM firefighter, and when he was told to stay away from the garage, he ran inside the burning garage and locked himself in.

29-year-old Blake Lister was taken into custody.

He's charged with interfering with extinguishing a fire and resisting a police officer. His bail is set at  $1,280.
