The MPD was called to a home on Blackbird Lane early Sunday morning following information that a woman had poured gasoline all over a bedroom where her bedridden housemate is confined. The victim is a smoker. The first responding officer told him, under no circumstances, should he use a match or lighter. The Madison Fire Department responded and the 60-year old was removed from the residence. His 49-year old housemate admitted she was thinking of burning the home down. She was taken to a medical facility for evaluation.
