A man set his house on fire trying to cremate his dead dog

Virginia - In 2011, When Charles Harris' 11-year-old Rottweiler named Thor died a few days earlier, Harris was unable to pick up the large animal and tried to get a shelter to come pick it up, but they were all closed on the weekend.

So he tried some veterinarians and they all said that they could dispose of Thor, but only if Harris brought him in.

Running low on options, Harris piled a bunch of wood around Thor's carcass, poured some gasoline over it all for good measure, and lit it.

When the Prince William County Fire & Rescue units arrived on the scene, they found flames covering the back of the house from the ground to the roof.

When it was all over, the animal shelter came out anyway and carted the charred dog's remains away.

Harris was cited for illegal outside burning and generated $70,000 in fire damage to his house.
