A 28-year old man appears in court Wednesday on charges in connection with a fire at a West Side apartment building that critically injured an infant and displaced dozens of people.

Johnell Walker was charged Tuesday night and is accused of starting the Monday night fire in the 700-block of North Central Avenue.

A 6-month-old girl was critically injured in the fire.

According to police reports, Walker may have lit fireworks inside an apartment after a dispute with his girlfriend.
