(POCATELLO, ID)  — An early morning fire at a Pocatello apartment complex was intentionally set.  Officials say the blaze started Wednesday morning at a complex on the 1000-block of McKinley Ave. A neighbor said the apartment was frequented by squatters and believes the fire may have been drug-related, which officials could not confirm. Three apartments were evacuated, including the home of an 84-year-old man confined to a wheelchair. No injuries were reported. An investigation is ongoing.
