TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One man is in jail in connection to an apartment fire.

Police arrested Anthony McKenzie.

According to investigators, McKenzie is responsible for a fire started at Greenwood Manor Apartments in Terre Haute.

Investigator Norm Loudermilk says security cameras helped lead to McKenzie's arrest.

"He was seen in the video trying to cover his head with his shirt. He disguised himself. His motive was that indicated when he was evicted to the people here, 'you haven't seen crazy yet,'" Loudermilk said.
