PHOENIX — At least 10 vehicles were destroyed Tuesday morning after a fire broke out at a Phoenix apartment complex.

The Phoenix Fire Department says the incident started around 5:30 a.m. near 15th Avenue and Camelback Road.

Firefighters say the fire, which is believed to be arson, engulfed at least 10 cars under a parking structure at the complex. That fire was so intense that an apartment building about 50 feet away also caught fire.

Below is the photo of the person of interest fire investigators want to speak with. His name is not known at this time.

Once the apartment fire was put out, firefighters turned their efforts to the parking structure. Unfortunately, most of the vehicles involved were destroyed.

Power lines were also burned in the fire, causing more complications for firefighters.

No power outages have been reported in the area and no injuries were reported.
