A person who knows that a fire which was started or maintained, albeit lawfully, by
him or with his assent is endangering life or a substantial amount of property of
another is guilty of a class A misdemeanor if he willfully fails either to take reasonable
measures to put out or control the fire when he can do so without substantial risk
to himself or to give a prompt fire alarm.
