BEND, OR -- St. Charles Bend's Emergency department was forced to evacuate, earlier this week, after a small fire was discovered in a trash can. According to Bend Police, an officer opened the door to a consult room, Wednesday evening, and saw 35-year-old Henry Crall pouring hand sanitizer on the blaze.
The officer tried to pull the trash can out of the room while a hospital volunteer grabbed a fire extinguisher, but authorities say the La Pine man continued to pour the liquid in to the can. The officer was able to put it out and no injuries were reported.
Investigators Believe Crall used a lighter and hand sanitizer to start the fire. He's now charged with arson.
