A police stand-off in Tulsa keeps officers busy for hours overnight.

Tulsa Police say it started about 3:30 AM when they responded to a disturbance call at 324 East Young Place.

Authorities say a man inside a home called 911, and then refused to talk to police when they arrived or follow their instructions.

The man ended up setting several small fires inside the home. Authorities were able to quickly put the fires out and about 5:15 AM; they eventually took the man into custody.

The man and an elderly woman also inside the house were not hurt.
