BOLTON, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a woman accused of intentionally setting fire to a home in west Mississippi has been arrested.

Hinds County Sheriff’s Department Maj. Pete Luke told WAPT-TV that 52-year-old Terri Houston is charged with arson. Houston is the girlfriend of the person who lives at the home.

Fire officials received a call around 1 a.m. Monday at the home.

Luke says firefighters extinguished the fire then received a second call around 5:30 a.m. reporting the fire had rekindled, resulting to the loss of the home.

Houston was taken to the Hinds County Detention Center. Details of her bond were not included. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
