A man was arrested and charged with arson after a Stratford, P.E.I., apartment building caught fire Saturday. 

Jeffery Burke, 24, of Georgetown was arrested and charged with arson, break and enter and uttering threats.  

The fire at 25 Glen Stewart Drive forced about 20 people out of the building overnight Saturday. 

Burke is being held in custody until his next court appearance on Oct. 22.

One unit was damaged by fire and several others have smoke and water damage.

Volunteers brought meals and personal-care kits for 15 adults and one child. The Red Cross provided emergency shelter for one tenant. 

Most tenants have made arrangements to stay with family or friends.
