VISTA, Calif. — Deputies arrested a 20-year-old man Thursday in connection with a fire at a North County apartment building.
Fire crews were called to an apartment complex in the 800 block of East Bobier Drive at about 11 p.m. Wednesday. They quickly extinguished a fire on the roof and determined that it had been intentionally set using twigs and brush.
Fire crews notified sheriff’s deputies, who began searching the area. They quickly located 20-year-old Juan Carlos Bojorquez hiding nearby. They said it was obvious that Bojorquez was high on drugs.
Bojorquez was booked into Vista Detention Center just before 2 a.m. on felony charges including setting fire to an occupied structure and being under the influence of drugs. He was being held in lieu of $150,000 bail.
A damage estimate was not immediately available, but no one was hurt.
