FOX 11 reports:
The video released Friday shows West Jordan police officers kicking in a door to enter the home, where they find the suspect shortly after he set fire to the home.
Police identified the suspect in the incident as 36-year-old Brandon Morgan, who is currently in custody at the Salt Lake County Jail.
Officer Ian Adams said: “It was a very chaotic situation. Initially only two officers arrived and contacted the suspect inside the home, third officer arrived shortly thereafter, and those three were engaged in a fight with the suspect inside while the fire was still burning, taking the whole house.”
