Liquid pre-shave causes fire

Posted:

Dubuque (KWWL) - Court documents say a Dubuque man used liquid pre-shave to start his apartment on fire because he thought he was going to be evicted.

Officials say the fire did about $10,000 damage.

Police say Todd Shaffer turned himself in less than two hours after firefighters responded to the blaze on December 15th.

He was arrested on a charge of first degree arson and pleaded not guilty earlier this week.

Shaffer faces up to 25 years in prison.
