A 37-year-old man was hurt in a house fire that was intentionally set in St. Peters early Tuesday morning.
Central County Fire and Rescue said crews responded to the 100 block of Timberidge Drive around 3:20 a.m.
The man was able to get out of their home and run to a neighbor’s home for help. The neighbor contacted 911. When fire crews arrived, paramedics began helping the victim and transported him to a hospital.
“We determined the fire was set intentionally and have turned the investigation over to the St. Peters Police,” said CCFR Assistant Chief Steve Brown.
It is estimated that the fire caused $20,000 in damages.
CCFR was assisted by the City of St. Charles Fire Department, Cottleville Fire District, St. Charles County Ambulance District and the CCFR Community Assistance Team.
