Man faces arson charge after Houston fire

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston police have arrested a man on an arson charge in an apartment complex fire allegedly started by a thrown Molotov cocktail.
The Houston Fire Department says one firefighter suffered a minor hand injury in the blaze extinguished early Friday. Several units suffered heavy damage.
Investigators say 26-year-old Darrius Owens allegedly was in a dispute with another family member at the apartments. Authorities are trying to determine the reason for the argument.
City jail records show Owens was in custody Friday with no immediate details on bond or an attorney for him.
Further details weren't immediately released. Red Cross officials were assisting displaced residents.
