CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A 29-year-old mother of four has been arrested after a fire broke out at her Corpus Christi apartment while she had left the children home alone.

Roxanne Blanco was held in the Nueces County Jail under $40,000 bond Thursday.

Police say her four children - ages 9, 6, 5 and 2 - were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries suffered Monday when they jumped from a second-floor window.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports (https://bit.ly/1Gc7fuK ) arrest documents show witnesses saw Blanco arrive at the apartment after the fire had started.

She’s charged with suspicion of four counts of endangering of a child and negligence and four counts of abandonment and criminal negligence. Child Protective Services officials say she has previous cases of child neglect.
