OAKLAND CITY — A western Indiana man faces intimidation and gun charges after threatening a homeowner and firefighters responding to an illegal burn on the homeowner’s property.

Oakland City firefighters were discussing the city’s burn ordinance Thursday evening with the 37-year-old homeowner when a 59-year-old neighbor began to argue with the man, state police said Friday.

Several firefighters stepped between the men and the neighbor pointed a handgun at them and the homeowner.

Police arrested the neighbor. No injuries were reported.

Oakland City is northeast of Evansville.
