Hill County house involved in standoff destroyed by fire

HILL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

The Hill County house involved in an eight hour standoff is a total loss after it caught fire late Tuesday night.

The Hill County Sheriff's Office reports that a deputy guarding the house heard a "pop" at 10:30 p.m. and then saw flames. Fire units from Aquilla and Abbott responded to the scene, but by the time they arrived, the house was engulfed. The house is a total loss after the fire.

The mobile home belonged to Chaden White and his mother, Michelle, after Chaden grandmother died two weeks ago. Chaden was sweeping through what was left of the home, and was upset about the loss.

"Now that the house is gone, that's all I have left is the dogs.," Chaden said. "That's all I got left and the deputies could have handled it better since it was their crime scene."

During the standoff, Chaden did call Glowski by phone trying to convince him to surrender, but Glowski told Chaden he wasn't going back to jail after a long list of misdemeanors and felonies.

When deputies were in communication with Glowski, he threatened to set the home on fire. He did finally surrender, but authorities weren't able to go inside and check the house because of all the tear gas.

"They could have went in with gas masks and help my son," Michelle said. "They didn't even assist him in trying to get the animals."

Chaden and Michelle believe some of their dogs died in the fire. 

When Glowski was booked in the Hill County jail, deputies found lighters in his pocket. The scene is being investigated as arson.

Deputies had a search warrant and planned to search the house on Wednesday to find the weapons used to fire shots at officers.
