Arson fire destroys home in Pilot Station 'party'
Four people from a northwest Alaska village are in custody after Alaska State Troopers say a home was deliberately burned last weekend.
A trooper dispatch said Matraca Alick, 27; Emery Alick, 25, Nolan Joseph, 26; and a 15-year-old girl broke into a house Sunday in Pilot Station to "party."
After the group spent about half an hour at the home, troopers say Matraca Alick poured gasoline around the front door and lit it with a lighter.
The house burned completely and was a total loss according to troopers. Although Pilot Station is a dry village, troopers say alcohol was a factor.
No one was hurt in the fire.
Matraca Alick is charged with arson and trespassing. Emery Alick is charged with giving alcohol to a minor. Nolan Joseph is charged with trespassing.
All were arrested and transported to YKCC in Bethel for remand pending arraignment.
