Police say someone broke into an Edmonds condominium this morning while the homeowner was asleep and set fire to the unit.
The break-in happened around 1 a.m. in the 100 block of 3rd Avenue North. No one was injured in the fire, according to Edmonds police.
After putting out the small fire in a second-floor unit, Edmonds firefighters cleared the scene and alerted police to the break-in. Police say it appears that someone entered the unit while the homeowner was asleep, stole some items and then set the fire.
The homeowner was awakened by the smoke alarm and called 911, police said. Residents evacuated the building.
