TULSA, Okla. – As families try to pick up the pieces following a devastating fire, an arrest has been made.
Dozens of Oklahoma families were displaced after a fire ripped through an apartment complex in Tulsa last month.
Now, a man has been arrested in connection to the blaze.
Police say Roosevelt Tolon was seen setting a pile of clothes on fire inside a vacant unit at the Leisure Manor Apartments.
Tolon reportedly told police that he started the fire by using alcohol, toilet paper and a lighter.
He was taken into custody for the fire and an outstanding warrant.
Although no one was injured by the blaze, 40 adults and 20 children were temporarily displaced.
