Craig Ehlo was released without bail Friday and ordered not to contact family members or return to his rural Spokane County home by a superior court judge. Appearing in a yellow jumpsuit via teleconference at the Spokane County Courthouse, Ehlo agreed with orders made by Superior Court Judge James Triplet not to leave Washington state and not to posses fire-starting materials. Triplet set an arraignment for Ehlo on charges of first degree reckless burning, a class C felony, Aug. 14 at 9:30 a.m. Ehlo was arrested early Thursday morning at his home in the 3300 block of East 77th Avenue after Sheriff’s Office deputies discovered him being held down by family members near a pile of his burning clothes. The gasoline-fueled fire caused damage to an awning and siding on the home, according to the Sheriff’s Office/Kip Hill, SR. More here.
