Paul Williams, a 64-year-old resident at 550 Leavenworth, has been arrested and charged with igniting a fire that gutted the apartment building.

The Sunday morning two-alarm fire damaged nine units of the apartment building and displaced all 25 of the structure's residents due to electrical problems.

Fellow residents of the Colonade Apartments reported they saw Williams "stumbling out of his room with smoke coming out of it" at around 8:30 yesterday morning. The 64-year-old was booked for arson and for possession of flammable substances.

Williams' background is unknown, according to the San Francisco Police.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
