Man accused of arson, lighting home on fire


BELLINGHAM — A man was arrested Saturday after allegedly pouring fuel from a five-gallon gas can onto a north Bellingham residence, according to Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Rodger Funk.

Kyran Mayshack, 30, was seen by someone pouring and lighting gas on the backside of a residence in the 3900 block of Wynn Road near the Bellingham International Airport, Funk wrote in an email to The Bellingham Herald.

The neighbor put out the fire and called 911 after Mayshack left on a bicycle, according to Funk.

Deputies responded and arrested Mayshack after he was identified by a witness, Funk told The Herald. Mayshack was also arrested for a number of other outstanding warrants, according to Whatcom County Jail booking data.
