An Anhui Province man is in police custody for lighting his pigsty on fire in an attempt to burn his own pigs after an argument with his wife, media reported Saturday.

Hexian county police and firefighters were called out to a fire on the evening of November 3 at the residence of the farmer surnamed Zhang.

Authorities said it was Zhang's wife, surnamed Liu, who first phoned in the fire.

Liu told them she and Zhang had started arguing earlier that day that quickly escalated into a physical fight.

In a fit of rage, Zhang lit the couple's pigsty outside their home, Liu told police.

Zhang blames Liu for driving him to arson.

"Every time we fight, she hits first," Zhang told police.

"I used to be in the armed police force. I didn't want to light the pigsty on fire. I wanted to burn my pigs!" he said.

The fire resulted in 10,000 yuan ($1,600) in damages, police estimated.
