A man who violated a restraining order barricaded himself inside a Vancouver home then set it on fire, police said. The Vancouver Police Department said officers responded to a reported restraining order violation at 4 p.m. But when they got to the home in the 3200 block of NW Division Avenue, the suspect refused to come outside. Nearly an hour-and-a-half later, officers noticed flames inside the home allegedly started by the man who was still barricaded inside. He finally came out around 6 p.m. and was arrested, police said. The fire was then extinguished. Authorities said several neighbors were evacuated but have since returned to their homes, none of which sustained damage.
