(KNZA)---A Holton man has been arrested after three died, including two children, following a Topeka house fire that investigators say was intentionally set and domestic in nature.

The Topeka Fire Department, in a news release, said 32-year-old Kyle Tyler was arrested Saturday after he was released from a Topeka hospital and questioned by investigators.

Tyler was arrested on three counts of first-degree murder, four counts of aggravated assault and two counts of aggravated child endangerment.

He was booked into the Shawnee County Jail where he is being held on one million dollars bond.

The house fire was reported shortly before 5:00 Friday morning in the 900 block of Southwest Warren Avenue in central Topeka. The release says there was heavy smoke and flames coming from the two-story home when firefighters arrived.

Firefighters entered the home and brought out two adults and two children.

One adult and one child were pronounced dead at the scene. The other adult and child were taken to a Topeka hospital, where the child died.

The victims were identified as 30-year-old Genny Fitzpatrick, 9-year-old Peyton Tyler and 1-year-old Kourtney Tyler, all of Topeka,
