LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A woman has been charged in a fire at the McMath Public Library in Little Rock.

According to authorities, the Little Rock Fire Department responded to a fire around 9:15 a.m. Saturday. Authorities say the library’s manager entered the library and smelled gasoline in the front entrance. Officials say she called police and as she began evacuating employees, a fire broke out in the foyer. No injuries were reported.

Police say they linked 38-year-old Kisha Ilo to the fire through video surveillance footage. She has been charged with first-degree criminal mischief, reckless burning and five counts of aggravated assault. It was not immediately clear if Ilo has an attorney.
