Aragon pleads guilty to arson charges

DUNCAN — Dustin Aragon plead guilty to arson on June 20 after setting cushions in his home in the 600 block of S. 4th Street in Comanche on fire back in January.

Aragon will serve more than two years’ probation.

Oklahoma State Fire Marshal Agent Judah Sheppard investigated the fire at the Aragon family’s home in January and determined the cause of the fire to be the ignition of a sofa on the east wall of the living room, according to an incident report.

Dustin submitted a statement about intentionally pouring lighter fluid on the cushions of the sofa and lit them using a lighter, according to the report.

Two others were in the home prior to the reported time the fire began, according to the report.

Dustin left the house after igniting the cushions, according to the report.
