CANTON — Fire officials say a Hartford, Maine man set his house on fire Thursday afternoon and then hanged himself.

Steve McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety said the body of Daniel Stasulis, 57, was discovered in the rubble of the home, which was destroyed by the fire.

Flammable liquid was poured throughout the house and the set on fire by Sasulis, McCausland said in a news release.

Investigators found no note to explain his actions, McCausland said.

Two years ago, he said, Stasulis led police on a low speed chase through Falmouth, Yarmouth and North Yarmouth in his pickup truck.
