Reno police officers have arrested a man they say started a fire at a home on Lotus Street.

Police responded to a domestic disturbance around 1pm on Wednesday. While en-route, police say the victim's adult son set fire to a box of memorabilia and placed it on the porch. The victim extinguished the fire with a garden hose, but the inside of the home caught fire. 

Since the residence is a duplex, the adjacent home was evacuated.

The adult son, 20-year-old Kelvin Lytle was arrested outside the home. No one was hurt.   

Right now, they say it's unknown if the house fire is a result of the initial fire or if another fire was set.

Lytle was booked into the Washoe County Jail on $20,000 bail and charged with first degree arson.

If you have any information about this case, call the Reno Police Department at 334-2115, Secret Witness at 322-4900,, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP 411) keyword - SW
