TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Biographies of George Bush, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon accounted for most of the dozen books burned in a fire at the Tacoma Main Library.

Library workers don’t think the motive for Saturday’s fire was political. It was set in the American History section.

KING reports (http://is.gd/W4ygbW ) Sharon Sailly of Tacoma pleaded not guilty Monday to an arson charge and was ordered jailed on $500,000 bail.

Court papers say she poured lighter fluid on the books and started the fire because she had an issue with a librarian. The fire forced about 250 patrons to evacuate the downtown library.
