A 47-year-old man high on meth started a small fire in a downtown McDonalds restaurant early this morning, according to Puyallup police.

Employees at the fast food restaurant called 911 about 12:20 a.m. to report a man had come inside and touched two wires together, causing sparks that ignited.

When officers arrived, they found the man hiding in a cooler at a nearby convenience store.

He was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of arson, malicious mischief and criminal trespassing.
