Lexington police have made an arrest for an apartment arson.
 
Police arrested Anthony Moore, 22. Fire investigators say a small fire broke out in an apartment on Kalmia, off Rose Street near the UK campus. Investigators say Moore was evicted from the building just last week. No one was hurt in the fire.

Another fire broke out at an historic downtown building in Lexington. Firefighters say the fire started around 4 a.m. Monday at the corner of North Mill and Short Streets. A police officer first saw heavy smoke coming from the building that was the city's oldest standing post office. It is currently being turned into a British pub.

Firefighters say they believe the fire started on the second floor. Investigators say it looks like someone forced the front door open. No arrests in this fire. Investigators say the two fires don't appear to be related.
