Apparently, it was a flaming bag of potato chips that led to a fire at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National this summer, causing $40,000 worth of damage.
The Patriot-News reports investigators announced a former Hollywood Casino employee allegedly lit the bag of chips with a wand lighter and threw it into a bag filled with potato chip bags, sparking the fire.
According to the report, 44-year-old Jean Gerald Boucard, was charged with causing or risking a catastrophe and criminal mischief.
The casino fire sparked on August 12 around 5 p.m. in the fourth-floor catering area.
The Patriot-News says surveillance video showed Boucard holding a lighter in order to light a propane gas grill outside.
The newspaper reports Boucard denied flicking the lighter or igniting the chips bag.
