DES MOINES (AP)--Police say there may have been criminal intent behind a weekend fire that injured four people, including a firefighter and a 10-year-old girl.
Police say the house fire in Des Moines on Saturday night began at about 9:45 p.m. Witnesses told police a man lit a chair in his bedroom on fire. Police brought the man in for questioning, but have not filed charges.
Two people injured in the fire remain in critical condition at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, one suffering from smoke inhalation and the other from second-degree burns.
The 10-year-old girl and firefighter Travis Kuefner were also taken to area hospitals to be treated for smoke inhalation.
Police have not made any arrests, but suspect arson.
