Man arrested following fire in Rhosddu, Wrexham

A man was arrested and neighbours were asked to leave their homes after a late-night flat fire in Wrexham.

Police said they were called to Rhosddu just before midnight on Saturday due to fears a man with a knife was attempting to self-harm.

A force spokesman said the man refused to cooperate before officers saw smoke billowing from a room.

Officers and fire crews forced entry and the man, 19, was talked down from an adjacent roof before being arrested.
