A Clay man will face multiple charges for falsely reporting a fire - to get someone to check on his daughter.

Wayne County sheriff's deputies say James Howe called to report a fire at his daughter's home in Sodus, telling officials she was trapped inside.  Firefighters and deputies responded, but found no fire.  Howe later claimed he just wanted someone to check on her for him.  Howe was arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident and jailed on bond.
