Michael Marin told Channel 15 (KNXV-TV) today that he was "utterly shocked" at the accusation and has a "conscience as clear as the driven snow."
Marin was the only person home the morning of July 5, when the blaze began in the 7,500-square-foot home. He reportedly got out of the burning house from a second-story balcony, wearing scuba gear and descending on a rope ladder. Good thing he had that stuff handy, right?
Marin received kinder media attention during his successful summit of Mount Everest in May.
