Wichita Police say a fire inside of an apartment Saturday morning may have been intentionally set.

It happened around 7:15 a.m. in the 6500 block of East Cottonwood, near Kellogg and Woodlawn. Sgt. Bruce Watts says firefighters responded to a fire inside the apartment and were able to bring it under control.

Evidence at the scene indicated the fire may have been intentionally set. Sgt. Watts says a 30-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man were involved in a domestic disturbance at the time of the fire.

A 1-year-old child was also inside the home at the time, but no one was hurt. Police detained the man and woman for questioning, but no arrests have been made.

The case is still under investigation and no other details have been released.
