A Seneca County man set his house on fire early this afternoon, and then sat on his porch as the home burned, firing off shots from a handgun, Seneca County deputies said,   

Lloyd Hick, 72, of Flat Rock, was taken into custody about 30 minutes after deputies arrived, after they urged him to surrender the weapon and step away from the burning home. He was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center for observation, deputies said. 

Hicks had fought with his wife earlier today, and set the home on fire after she left, deputies said. Nobody was injured.
