TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Tucson say arson charges have been filed against the woman who allegedly set her own home on fire.

They say 40-year-old Sabrina Phillips is believed to have started a fire inside her home on Feb. 9 and then attempted to burn other items in the yard.

Police say Phillips still was holding two lighters in her hands when officers arrived.

They say she resisted arrest and officers had to use a stun gun to subdue her.

Phillips was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police say she’s now been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of arson of an occupied structure, criminal damage and aggravated assault.

It was unclear Tuesday if Phillips has a lawyer yet.
