Police say a man assaulted someone and then set his own Emmet County home on fire last weekend.

Robert Jakeway is now charged with arson and assault with a dangerous weapon. 

Police say Jakeway assaulted someone at the home and then set it on fire.

Incredible body cam video taken from the scene Sunday shows an Emmet County deputies’ effort to break a window and rescue a dog still inside the burning home.

Crews saved two dogs that day, and both are expected to be OK.

Jakeway is being held on a $100,000 bond.

If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
