Arrest after Richmond Red Cross charity shop fire
A man has been arrested on suspicion of arson after a large fire ripped through a charity shop in North Yorkshire.
The blaze at the Richmond Red Cross shop spread to the roof of an adjacent property and caused substantial damage to another charity store and three other shops, the fire service said.
The fire at the shop in Finkle Street started shortly after 05:00 on Saturday and was tackled by six fire crews.
An 18-year-old remains in custody. No-one was injured, the fire service said.
The cost of repairing the damage is estimated to be "hundreds of thousands of pounds".
Police have appealed for any witnesses to come forward.
