EAGLE GROVE, Iowa (AP) -- A 21-year-old Sioux City man has been accused of setting a fire that injured at least 11 people in Eagle Grove.

Online court records say Luis Huerta-Valadez is charged with felony arson in Wright County. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.

Police say the house fire started about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday. Two police officers and one firefighter were among the 11 people taken to hospitals. Police helped some people to escape out second-story windows.
