Two overnight Tampa apartment fires ruled arson, but not connected

TAMPA — Investigators say someone intentionally set fire to a vacant Tampa apartment early Wednesday. No one was injured.

Firefighters arrived at 9420 N 50th St., about 4:15 a.m., where apartment B was burning. The fire was under control in about 15 minutes, officials said.

Tampa Fire Marshal's Office investigators deemed the fire an arson. Damage was estimated at $10,000.

Rescuers put out another arson fire just hours earlier — at 10610 N 30th St. That one apparently began with a dispute between roommates, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.

Fire Rescue spokesman Bill Wade said the two do not appear connected, nor do they seem connected to any other recent arsons in Tampa.

Investigators ask that anyone with information leave tips at tampagov.net/fire.
