Pittsburgh Fire and Pittsburgh Police responded to a small fire in a house on the 2300 block of Maple Avenue around 2:20 a.m.
When First Responders arrived, they found damage from flames that originated on a stovetop and spread to cabinets above the stove, but had mostly gone out. People inside the residence self-evacuated and no injuries were reported.
The Fire Investigation Unit, made up of investigators from Pittsburgh Fire and detectives from Pittsburgh Police, responded to the scene and determined that a male adult resident suffering from mental health issues intentionally set the fire. The 39-year-old was arrested on arson charges.
