Deputies went into a burning house on Daughtery Road in north Lakeland to remove a man who refused their orders to come out after allegedly threatening a woman with a knife. Charles Wayne, 62, was charged with resisting arrest and is being questioned by the state fire marshal about the 11 a.m. fire. One of the deputies was hospitalized overnight for treatment of smoke inhalation after he went into the house again to rescue a puppy. None of the 12 occupants of the house were injured.
