Woman charged with arson after barricading door, starting fire
SALT LAKE CITY — A 21-year-old woman was arrested and charged with aggravated arson after apparently barricading a man in a room and then starting it on fire.
The West Valley City woman was living in the basement apartment of a home at 3210 S. 6412 West when a fire broke out, documents filed in 3rd District Court state. The family living in the home heard the fire alarm and determined it was burning in a basement bedroom.
The downstairs tenants, including the suspect and a male tenant, were able to escape by breaking a bedroom window. The man told police the woman "barricaded the bedroom door and started the fire," according to court documents.
Investigators were able to confirm that the bedroom door had been barricaded from the inside. It was determined no incendiary device, accelerant or electrical source in the room was used to start the fire.
