DETROIT (AP) - A 73-year-old man has been charged in connection with an intentionally set blaze in a vacant house that left five Detroit firefighters injured.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Henry Vanreyendam is jailed after being arraigned on multiple counts of arson.

The firefighters were inside the burning house on the city’s southwest side Thursday when part of it collapsed.

WDIV-TV reported that one firefighter suffered a broken leg. Another suffered third-degree burns and was treated at a hospital. Three other firefighters were treated and released from a hospital.
