A Pasco County man is facing charges after trying to run into his burning home to save his pets.

According to an online arrest report, Henry Ben Morgan is facing a felony charge of obstructing the extinguishment of a fire and a
misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest without violence.

Sheriff's deputies and firefighters who responded to burning home Friday morning yelled at Morgan to stay back. According to a report, authorities had to restrain him so he would not jump into
the fire through a window.

Pasco Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Mike Ciccarello said Morgan's home is a "total loss," and crews could not save the animals.
