COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A 25-year-old woman has been given three years of probation for setting fires in Council Bluffs.

Court records say Rebecca Myers pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of arson and two of child endangerment after making a deal with prosecutors. On Tuesday a judge sentenced Myers to a total of 10 years in prison but suspended them in favor of probation.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1SOdB9u ) that Myers was charged with child endangerment because her two children were nearby when she set a fire Oct. 11 in a basement near Myers’ home.

Investigators say Myers set six fires between Oct. 4 and Oct. 20. No injuries have been reported.
