A Sunday night fire at a central Topeka apartment complex was intentionally set, fire investigators say.

According to the Topeka Fire Dept., firefighters could see smoke when they responded to the three-story structure, 1306 SW Harrison St., around 10 p.m. They attacked the blaze, which had started in Apt. #17, and kept it contained to the original structure.

A search of the building found no fire victims and no firefighters were hurt knocking down the flames, the department said.

A preliminary investigation determined the cause was incendiary. Investigators estimated the fire did about $500 in damage to the structure.
