LINCOLN -- Lincoln Police arrest a 21-year-old Omaha man for starting a fire inside an apartment at 23rd and "U" Street on Sunday morning.

Burn marks were also found on the coffee table, cabinet, fridge and wall. Smith extinguished the fires before he left. Police said Smith used butane and Pam Cooking Spray to start the fires. Damage is estimated at $500.
