Police in the southern province of Dong Nai on Wednesday arrested a man who allegedly burned down his family's house after his father refused to give him money for drugs.
Le Chi Tai, 25, reportedly set the house in Long Khanh Town on fire with firewood on March 20 after everybody had left for work.
His neighbors tried in vain to save the house. Firefighters arrived and managed to stop the fire from spreading, but the house and everything inside were completely burned down.
No one was hurt.
Tai reportedly told police that he had asked his father for money to buy drugs, but the father turned him down.
