CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) - Police in Central Falls are trying to identify a suspect who was shown on surveillance video setting fire to a home over the weekend.

Police released surveillance footage on Monday that shows a man in a winter coat and hat approach the building’s porch and start a fire early Saturday.

Officers had found a husband and wife asleep in the smoke-filled apartment with their 3-year-old son, along with three women and a man upstairs. All made it out safely. Firefighters responded soon after and extinguished the fire.

Chief James Mendonca tells WJAR-TV police have a person of interest.
