Suspect sought in Maplewood apartment fire

MAPLEWOOD, Missouri -- Authorities in Maplewood are looking for an 18-year-old man as part of an investigation into an arson fire that damaged an apartment building.

Police said investigators have determined the fire that broke out early Monday was intentionally set, and they have a suspect they want to question.

No one was hurt. Maplewood Fire Chief Terry Merrell says a third-floor apartment was badly damaged. The blaze spread to the roof and damaged two adjacent units. Also, two second-floor apartments had water damage.

Four families were forced out of their apartments as a result of the fire.
