Glasgow man arrested on charges of setting trailer on fire with sister inside

A Glasgow man is accused of setting a trailer on fire while his sister was still inside.

According to the arrest report, authorities responded to 73 Old Salem Church Road around 3:30 a.m. this morning.

Upon arrival, they spoke to Timothy Jewell’s, 27, sister who stated he poured gasoline around the inside of the trailer and on her feet about two hours prior.

Another occupant inside the trailer at the time told officers Jewell was striking a lighter just as he was able to make his way out the door.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and noted an odor of gasoline was present.

The report states, upon making contact with Jewell at his father’s house, he refused to talk to authorities.

Jewell is lodged in the Barren County Detention Center on a third-degree arson charge.

Court records show his arraignment is scheduled for today at 1 p.m.
