A fire broke out in a house in Leavesden Watford. The neighbours were evacuated for safety.
They were at risk of there maisonette could also going up in flames.
Emergency calls were made the the Fire service in the afternoon.
One of the residents said "a man came back to the house and was arrested"
The loft burned right next to the neighbours. The firemen smashed though the roof and flames gushed out, they then jetted the roof extinguishing the fire.
Firemen later went up to remove more tiles and make there hose safe. They will continue through the evening.
Drones were sent into the air above the house to get an aerial view of the damage and inside.
