GILEAD, Maine (AP) - A woman has been charged with arson and burglary in a house fire in Gilead, Maine.

Fire marshals say 30-year-old Lynn Hutchins, of Rochester, New Hampshire, was arrested Thursday.

Authorities had investigated a burglary at the vacant vacation home on Wednesday and firefighters were called to the home on Thursday for a small fire that was quickly extinguished.

They said Hutchins was found in town and found to be driving a car that was stolen from a car dealer in Lebanon, Maine, earlier in the week.

Fire marshals also are investigating a fire at that dealership that destroyed three cars Monday night.

It wasn’t immediately known if Hutchins had a lawyer.
