WASILLA, Alaska (AP) - A Wasilla man is being held without bail at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility after his family accused him of dumping gasoline on them and trying to set them on fire.

KTUU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1LoUMqI ) that the 37-yeaer-old man poured gasoline on multiple family members inside their home Friday night.

Alaska State Troopers say one family member tried to stop the man only to be attacked again. He then fled the scene but was chased down and arrested.

He faces one count each of second-degree, third-degree and fourth-degree assault.
