The Santa Maria Police Department (SMPD) responded to a house in the 800 block of E. Mariposa Way where they say there was a man wanted on domestic violence-related charges who refused to surrender to police, according to SMPD spokesman Sgt. Russ Mengel. The police arrived at the scene around 8:30 a.m. A Special Weapons and Tactics team was called to assist. Several blocks surrounding the immediate area were roped off. Three hours later, police removed the door and fired tear gas into the house. The house eventually caught on fire. Fire department officials have said they are still investigating the exact cause of the fire. The man, identified as 29-year-old Eddie Dominguez, surrendered shortly before noon and was taken into custody.
