Bridgeport police: Man killed in suspicious apartment fire
Authorities are investigating a suspicious fire that left a man dead in Bridgeport last night. Officials say the blaze broke out on the third floor of a multi-family home on Pembroke Street.

Fire officials say the flames did not spread to his apartment, but that the smoke became too intense. Detectives say gasoline had been poured out on the third floor, and that they have reason to believe the fire was intentionally set by a recently evicted tenant.
