May 20, 2014

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a 24-year-old man is suspected of starting a fire at an Omaha apartment complex last week.

An Omaha Fire Department news release says Steven Kephart, of Omaha, was arrested on Monday after he was interviewed. Douglas County Jail records say Kephart remained in custody on Tuesday. His attorney in a recent case didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

The fire left water damage at several apartments in the west Omaha complex on Thursday. One man was injured.
