Burnsville police on Saturday arrested a man suspected of deliberately setting fire to an apartment complex from which more than 50 residents had been evicted.

Just before 9 a.m. Saturday, the Burnsville Fire and Police Department responded to the fire and evacuated residents of the Parkview Flats Apartments on Block 1500 of Burnsville Parkway East. The city said the five-story, 100-unit building had fire alarms but no sprinkler system.

An arson investigation is ongoing. A suspect has not yet been identified.

Two residents and a firefighter suffered minor injuries, and residents of 50 units were evacuated due to the fire, the city said. American Red Cross volunteers helped and opened a shelter at the Glendale United Methodist Church in Savage.
