More details are emerging from a bizarre incident in Knox Wednesday night.

State Police say a man set his house on fire on Saddlemire Road, and then prevented firefighers from doing their job, including going as far as cutting down trees to block access.

The unnamed man is also accused of threatening firefighers and keeping troopers at bay for several hours, until they were able to negotiate his peaceful surrender after 7am Thursday morning.

No one was hurt.
