A house in Colorado that exploded and caught fire early Tuesday morning was spray-painted with the words "My wife is a cheater."
Firefighters responded to the home in the 6800 block of Nelson Street in the Denver suburb of Arvada around 1:30 a.m. after reports of an explosion, according to Denver television station KDVR.
Crews faced heavy fire upon arrival and found debris scattered in the street. All occupants were accounted for and there were no reports of injuries, according to an Arvada Fire Department Facebook post.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
The Arvada Police Department said a man was in custody in connection with the fire. Police planned to release his identity later Tuesday.
The front of the house was spray-painted with the words “My wife is a cheater” in two places, KDVR reported. Firefighters put blue tarps over the graffiti, and police declined comment on whether the messages were connected to the explosion.
Neighbors told KDVR a family, including three young children, lives in the home.
