GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- A customer at the Knights Inn in Grand Rapids is staying in the Kent County Jail instead after he allegedly set his mattress on fire Sunday afternoon.

He is being held on arson charges.

He told officers that there were demons in his room and the fire was his way of “warding off evil spirits”.

Smoke from the fire was detected by other residents who called 9-1-1 and quickly evacuated the motel place on Plainfield Ave. NE.

Fire crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire, containing it in the one room.

The suspect is also being held for resisting arrest and obstructing fire fighters. There were no reported injuries.
