TACOMA, Wash. — Tacoma Police have arrested a 47-year-old man suspected of starting a fire at a home with his wife and two teenage children inside.
Kenneth Massey was booked into Pierce County Jail early Sunday on investigation of attempted murder and arson.
The News-Tribune reports that no one was hurt in the Saturday night fire.

Police found him nearby and arrested him.
