An estimated 60 residents were displaced after a massive five-alarm fire ignited at an apartment complex in Tustin early Wednesday morning, fire officials said. The Orange County Fire Authority says 120 firefighters and support staff responded to the large fire at the Chatham Village Apartments, located in the 15700 block of Williams Street near McFadden Avenue just after 3 a.m. It is believed the fire started on the first floor before quickly spreading to surrounding units on the second floor and the attic, OCFA Capt. Tony Bommarito said. On Wednesday evening, Tustin police announced the arrest of 59-year-old Patrick Andrew Ceniceros in connection with the fire. He was booked into Orange County Jail and faces arson charges.
