VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Investigators say a fire that significantly damaged an apartment complex in Vancouver and sent people leaping out windows Saturday was arson.

The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/Z0y8ne ) no serious injuries were reported in the fire that started Saturday evening. The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office says about $250,000 in damage was done to four units.

The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office said Tuesday the fire is believed to have been arson. Authorities are looking for a white woman in her 20s with light brown hair who may have been in the area driving a silver BMW X5 at the time.

Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli says an award of up to $1,000 has been offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.
