A woman is in jail, accused of setting fire to her neighbor's house. Virginia Beach fire investigators said police responded to the incident in the 2200 block of Sedgewick Dr. on March 2. The owner of the home that was on fire said she was upstairs when she saw smoke passing by her bedroom window. She looked outside and saw her neighbor, 50-year-old Jacques Wesley walking from the back of the burning home to Wesley's house. The homeowner went downstairs and found a small fire against her sliding back door. She called to her boyfriend who came downstairs and got into an argument with Wesley. The homeowner then dialed 911 to get police on scene.
