SPOKANE, Wash. -- An early morning fire near Martin and Rowan destroyed an apartment unit. 

Witnesses said the flames blew out a window. The owner of the building, Mike Meyers, said a woman lives there alone.

She got help from a neighbor when flames were first spotted and witnesses said the place was fully engulfed in minutes.  No one was hurt but one unit is gutted.

Authorities arrested Ruth Edmonson, 53, on arson charges.  She was booked into Spokane County Jail. 

The other people living in the complex have been cleared to stay.
