LARGO, Fla. (AP) -- A Largo man is accused of lighting a mattress
on fire while his pregnant wife and two young children were in bed.

Rick Dakanno was being held Tuesday in the Pinellas County Jail
on a charge of first-degree arson. Jail records did not indicate a
bond amount or if he has an attorney. There is no phone number
listed for him in the area.

An arrest report says Dakanno began arguing with his wife when
he set the bed on fire. The wife and children were not injured and
they have since moved out of the mobile home they shared with

An investigation is ongoing and police say Dakanno could face
other charges.
