Relapsed addict sets fire to his mother’s home

A capital man bridged the gap from addict to arsonist as he set fire to his mother’s Sen Sok district house on Wednesday.

Noting her 31-year-old offspring’s recent relapse after returning from rehab, the woman says he was the only one home when the flames began and must have fled.

Authorities tried extinguishing the blaze at the wood and brick home, but were unsuccessful. Later they tracked down the pyromaniac and he confessed to his crime.
