Man accused of intentionally setting a shed on fire


Amarillo Police arrest one man after they say he intentionally set a fire that destroyed a shed on an east Amarillo property.  

The Fire Department was called to 1316 S.E.12th Avenue around 2:30 Saturday morning. 

Residents who live on that property told fire officials they were unable to get out of the only exit in their home because the fire in the shed was too close and was too hot to exit.  

The AFD was able to help get everyone out of that home safely.

According to officials, flames and heavy smoke could be seen from several blocks away.

The blaze caused around $5,000 worth of damage.
