GREENWICH - A man who reportedly blew up his garage is facing criminal charges.

Last month, a fire erupted in a garage on Northridge Road.

The Greenwich Time newspaper is now reporting that Henry Calam caused the fire by working with combustible items that sparked the fire.

The paper says police had already warned Calam in January about unsafe conditions in another home that caused another fire.

Police say the fire in his rented house on Northridge was due to carelessness and could have been prevented.
