Booze, a domestic dispute and an alleged decision to set a house full of people aflame has landed a 50-year-old woman behind bars.
West Jordan Deputy Fire Chief Reed Scharman said the suspect was arrested in connection with a Sunday morning blaze at a home near 1600 W. 8700 South. At the time of the fire, eight other people, one a child, were inside the residence.
Upon arrival at the fire, crews found a bedroom and adjoining bathroom in flames, as well as extensive smoke and heat damage throughout the home's upstairs.
The suspect allegedly told investigators that she had fallen asleep in bed with a lit cigarette, but Scharman stated that arson investigators found evidence that the fire had been intentionally set.
