Richmond police want to question a man about a fire that burned his former girlfriend's house Friday on Parrish Avenue.
Scott A. Milligan, 39, also is facing charges that he violated an emergency protective order on several occasions, police said.
Investigators said Milligan had made repeated threats to burn the house that was gutted by the fire. No one was injured in the blaze. Milligan has made threats to harm himself, his girlfriend and their child, police said. The woman has not been identified.
An emergency protective order was served on Milligan on Sept. 8 after he reportedly pointed a loaded shotgun at his ex-girlfriend and broke several windows in her vehicle, police said.

Police arrested Milligan on Sept. 9 for violation of the protective order after he confronted his former girlfriend at a local service station.
On Sept. 12, Milligan again violated the order by going to the woman's home, police said. On Sept. 13, he violated it again by following the woman around Richmond in a vehicle, police said. Police said Milligan approached the woman's vehicle when she stopped in a parking lot downtown to call police. Milligan got back into his vehicle and left, and police followed but ended the pursuit because Milligan was putting other motorists at risk by driving recklessly, a police news release said.
Milligan is wanted on charges of violation of an emergency protective order, second-degree wanton endangerment, fleeing or evading police, reckless driving and menacing, police said.
He is described as 5-feet-8 and 175 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes, and he recently grew a beard, police said.
Anyone who knows of Milligan's whereabouts is asked to call Richmond police at (859) 623-1162 or the 911 dispatch center at (859) 624-4776.
