PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Peoria have arrested a woman on suspicion of arson after her mobile home was found on fire.

They say 48-year-old Georgia Gannon-Brown also was being held on criminal damage charges with additional charges possible.

It was unclear Wednesday if Gannon-Brown had a lawyer yet.

A neighbor called police Monday night to say Gannon-Brown was acting disorderly and had locked herself in a bedroom of the mobile home.

Officers entered the home despite heavy smoke, worried Gannon-Brown was trapped inside. They found no one in the home.

A cadaver dog was used to search the ruins Tuesday morning, but it found no human remains.

Police say Gannon-Brown was located at a family member’s home in Glendale and allegedly admitted to starting the fire inside the bedroom of her trailer.
