MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis police are looking for the person who broke into a home in the Nutbush area and started multiple fires throughout the house.

Fire fighters responded to the fire late Thursday night in the 4000 block of Print Avenue, near North Graham Street.

The people renting the house were not there when the fire started and said items were missing from the house.  Fire fighters also discovered  a broken window.

Neighbors tell WREG they did not hear or see anything last night.

"We've got a security system at our house and I'm getting ready to install some cameras back here.  I wish I had installed them earlier now," said Chris White.

The fire caused about $8,000 dollars worth of damage to the home.
