(York) --  One person has been arrested in connection with a three-alarm fire in York that investigators believe was deliberately set.

The blaze in a three-story abandoned warehouse in York was reported at about 12:45 a.m. this morning.

The York Daily Record reports York Fire Chief David Michaels points to arson as the cause and says police took one person into custody.

Firefighters say seven buildings were damaged, four of them heavily.

No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross was assisting 11 people forced from nearby row homes.

As firefighters battled the blaze, Carlisle Avenue north of Linden Avenue was closed in the city. Belvidere Avenue and Philadelphia Street were also blocked.
