Authorities were called around 2:30 am on Sunday morning to report a fire that started in a room at the Lincoln Motel in the Philadelphia suburb of Bensalem in the US. When they arrived they arrested and charged a 46 year old Philadelphia man, Kevin Small, after he confessed to throwing a cup of gasoline on his girlfriend, 46 year old Mellissa Bacon-Smith while she was smoking, starting a fire that killed her after a dispute between the two.

Police said Small told them that he bought the gasoline from a convenience store across the street from the motel. He said he didn’t intend to kill his girlfriend.

Fire crews reported thick black smoke coming from two rooms. The blaze was declared under control in about a half-hour.

When reporters asked Smith if he had anything to say to Bacon-Smith’s family, he responded, “I’m sorry.”

At least three people were rescued from second-floor rooms following the fire. Several people were treated for smoke inhalation, but their injuries were not considered life-threatening.
