DENVER (AP) - Authorities are searching for a man who they say started a massive fire at a suburban Denver condo complex.

The Adams County Sheriff’s Office issued an arrest warrant Thursday for 20-year-old Martin Castruita Espinoza on charges of attempted murder, arson and aggravated cruelty to animals. The Tuesday fire damaged at least two buildings, but no serious injuries were reported.

Authorities say Espinoza was last seen Wednesday morning near the condominiums. The sheriff’s office urged anyone with information on his whereabouts to call 911.

Helicopter video showed a large plume of smoke coming from the buildings, which are very close to others in the complex. The roof of one building collapsed.

The cause of the fire hasn’t been determined.
