Arson Alarm

The Seattle Police Department (SPD) arrested a 38-year-old Federal Way man who officers say started several fires in a Belltown apartment building on March 10. Officers said the suspect is a former tenant of the apartment complex. The Seattle Fire Department responded to the fire, located at the Bell Tower in the 2200 block of Frist Avenue, around 2:45 a.m. An official said the fire had started in the lobby of the 17-story low-income housing complex. Crews were able to put the fire out in less than an hour, and investigators were able to determine that the fire was intentionally set. Multiple floors of the building were evacuated due to unsafe conditions. Those residents were able to take shelter inside a King County Metro bus before being allowed back into their homes. read more
