Woman Arrested on Arson Charge

A woman accused of setting her boyfriend's apartment on fire is now under arrest.

Thirty-nine-year-old Patricia Ann Thomas was arrested Wednesday morning at a relative's home off Wahnish Way.

Arson investigators have been looking for her since last Thursday when the upstairs apartment erupted in flames.

Investigators say the fire started on a mattress which appears to have been doused with flammable liquid.

No one was hurt in the fire, but neighbors had to be evacuated.

Captain John Gatlin with the Tallahassee Fire Department says Thomas confessed to setting the fire in the wake of an argument with her boyfriend.
