ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP/WCCO) — A 34-year-old man is dead after a fire was intentionally set in a St. Paul apartment.

St. Paul Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard says fire crews responded around 12:15 a.m. Saturday to 1533 Woodbridge St. at Woodbridge Manor and found a small fire in the man’s bedroom, where the man was found.
