MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) -- Marshfield police have arrested a man caught breaking into and burning things inside an area business.

Police say 19-year-old Michael Straka broke into Avalon early Tuesday morning and started a fire inside. Police and fire crews responded, and Straka tried to barricade himself inside the building for a short time. He did later surrender to police.

No one was injured in the incident, but a tenant in an upstairs apartment had to be evacuated because of the fire.

Police are referring charges of arson, failure to comply and three counts of burglary in the case.
