If you carefully read what he says, he doesn't say the fire was unintentional. He says it wasn't set with the intention of burning Mr. Dorner out:
"Although the canisters included pyrotechnic tear gas, which generates heat,
'We did not intentionally burn down that cabin to get Mr. Dorner out,' McMahon said."
If their intention was to burn him to death, this is a really nifty bit of prevarication.
I'm sure there will be an investigation... of sorts.
