Police arrested a transient man on suspicion of arson in connection with a one-alarm apartment fire in Concord Sunday, a police sergeant said. Fire crews responded around 11:50 a.m. Sunday to a fire at an apartment complex in the 1900 block of Clayton Way, according to the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.
Two apartment units were badly damaged by the fire, but firefighters were able to keep the flames from spreading further, according to the fire district.
