AMY WINEHOUSE’S former husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, 37, has today been arrested on suspicion of arson after setting fire to his 7th-floor flat.

The alarm was raised about 8.10am this morning when Krystal Howard, 33, and her husband John, 52, who live next door to Blake were alarmed by the heat they could feel penetrating the bedroom wall, stating it was “red hot” as reported by the Daily Mail.

A second neighbour confirmed the danger by banging on their door and shouting there was a fire.

They were met by Blake on the landing, reportedly ‘off his face’ on drugs and more concerned about getting more high than raising the alarm and casually informed: “it’s only a bit of smoke. I have set my curtains on fire” and then he just laughed before walking up to the ninth floor, leaving his flat ablaze and others to call the fire brigade.

As the singing star’s ex walked away to smoke more drugs, the terrified neighbours were left in the 16 storey building, owned by Leeds City Council Housing, to rouse other tenants and evacuate the immediate flats.

Locals said Blake is often ‘off his noodle’ on drugs and is a problem resident in the block, in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman has been reported to sate that the police were contacted at: ‘At 9:02am today (26/11)’ by the fire service who were attending a fire at a flat in Gamble Hill Croft, Leeds.

Officers then ‘attended and arrested’ a man on ‘suspicion of arson’.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the incident was over by 1.08pm which is when its vehicles left the area.

But the ending could have been devastating, as one resident reportedly stated: ‘Blake didn’t care what he’d done. He thought it was funny, but all we could think about was Grenfell.’
