Man arrested after fire in his Kent apartment

Police took a man into custody after he tried to barricade himself in his burning apartment in Kent this morning, fire officials said.

Police had gone to the apartment in the 24000 block of 110th Place Southeast, were not allowed to enter, and while at the scene, a fire started in the man’s apartment, said fire Capt. Kyle Ohashi. Police called firefighters.

By the time firefighters arrived, Ohashi said, the man had been arrested.

Firefighters contained the fire to the first-floor apartment, though several units had smoke in them. The residents were not injured.

Firefighters and paramedics evaluated the man, and he was taken to a hospital for an unknown reason, Ohashi said.
