Arson reported in Dondee Drive complex

By The Mercury

Police reported an aggravated arson at 713 Dondee Dr. Thursday at approximately 6 p.m.

Capt. Kurt Moldrup said a resident of the complex discovered a burning cardboard box in a lower-level laundry room, but said that residents were able to put out the fire before authorities arrived.

Moldrup said the fire was clearly intentionally set and that it was filed as an aggravated arson because the fire was lit in an apartment complex where people were present.

There were no injuries.
