FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A fire that destroyed a car in a parking garage in North Dakota was started by a man burning his divorce papers.

Court records show that Charles Aldrich is facing a felony charge of endangering by fire or explosion. Records show the Fargo man intentionally set the documents on fire last month at the Park East Apartments garage.

WDAY-TV (https://bit.ly/1DgsMlQ ) reports that firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, but not before it destroyed Aldrich’s vehicle and caused about $10,000 in damage to the building.

Records show Aldrich only wanted to burn the divorce documents, but the blaze quickly got out of control.

An arrest warrant has been issued against Aldrich. Court records do not list his attorney.
