TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and arson after a small fire in a Topeka apartment.

The Topeka Fire Department said in a news release that the fire started early Thursday in the four-unit building. Crews quickly extinguished the fire, and all of the residents made it out of the building safely.

After a witness pinned the blame on an 18-year-old at the scene, the man was taken for questioning and booked into the Shawnee County jail. The preliminary investigation found that the blaze was “intentionally set.”

The losses were estimated at $1,000.
