SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A tense situation ended peacefully, when a man accused of trying to set a building on fire surrendered to police.
Officers responded to the 600 block of 11th Avenue shortly after 6:00 p.m. Sunday.
Witnesses said a man was trying to light a fire inside an apartment complex, but didn't get far before police showed up.
"He was breaking windows over there and he started throwing things out and then the police were called,” said Janene Lacey. "They came with a dog, and the guy put his hands up right away and he walked out backwards and that was that."
San Diego police said the man set fire to some curtains and books, but nothing else.
He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
