    Police: Arrest Made in Suburban Kansas City House Fire | Missouri News


    BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) — A man has been arrested and charged with first-degree arson for a fatal Blue Springs duplex fire that police say he started when he intentionally set some clothing on fire in the basement.

    Anthony Jordan, 48, is accused of starting the fire in his home that led to the death of a woman who lived next door, the Kansas City Star reported. Police said Jordan told investigators that he had poured lighter fluid onto clothing in the basement because he was drunk and angry with his ex-girlfriend.

    When firefighters arrived at the duplex fire around 2:40 a.m. Monday, they found the woman with serious injuries and rushed her to a hospital, where she died Wednesday. Her name had not been released by midday Friday.

    A Jackson County judge set Jordan’s bond at $50,000 on Thursday.
