A Jonesborough, Tennessee, man is accused of killing a puppy, and putting five people at risk of death, by setting a house on fire. According to multiple sources on Friday, 29-year-old Don Wines set a bathroom on fire and then threw a nine-week-old puppy into a basket in the bathroom and allowed her to die.
The people in the home were able to escape the blaze, but the puppy who was thrown into the fire perished. According to WCYB News, Wines had set the basement on fire earlier the same day, but family members were able to get it out. By the time that fire crews responded to the residence on the 100 block of Kiser Circle, the structure was fully engulfed in flames.
Wines was booked into the Washington County Jail on multiple charges, including:
Aggravated arson, aggravated cruelty to animals, aggravated child endangerment, and reckless endangerment. He’s also accused of violating an order of protection.
