CLEVELAND - A huge fire tore through an apartment building on Saturday night, and officials are now searching for a suspect.

The U.S. Marshals Service says it is now seeking 32-year-old Gianni Gray for questioning in connection with the fire. The convicted felon is already a most-wanted fugitive.

The blaze began shortly after 10 p.m. at 91st and Lorain Avenue. There were also power outages in the area because a number of transformers blew out as crews fought to control the flames.

One firefighter was almost seriously hurt during the fire when he came close to running out of oxygen. He was able to be rescued before any serious injuries occurred.

There is a reward for any information that leads to the arrest of Gray.
