    Officials Call Kent Apartment Fire Arson: Started By Fireworks

    POSTED: 2:36 p.m. PDT July 5, 2003

    KENT --
    The Kent Fire Department said today it believes an

    apartment fire in a public housing complex Friday night was caused by



    fireworks.
    Several residents say the blaze started after children in the

    area had been throwing fireworks at each other.

    22-year-old Tom Heib was visiting his girlfriend nearby and said

    he saw a rocket fly through a window.

    The blaze left 10 families homeless and caused about one

    million dollars damage.

    About 40 residents at the Springwood Apartments in the city's

    East Hill neighborhood were evacuated. None of the residents was

    hurt, but two firefighters were treated at the scene for

    dehydration.

    One two-story building at the complex was engulfed in flames by

    the time firefighters got there, shortly after 7:15 p-m.
