A Pasco man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly burned several tables and chairs in a Kennewick alley.
Police used security video footage of the fire to identify Scott Gregory Erdman, 54, before finding him. A Kennewick arson investigator later called 911 after seeing Erdman wandering around near Columbia Drive and Alder Street, police said.
The fire started about 5:30 a.m. at 109 W. Kennewick Ave. before Kennewick police and fire responded, police said. Several tables and chairs were destroyed in a fenced-off area, and a building was threatened.
Erdman was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of second-degree arson.
