Officers from the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety arrested a 37-year-old woman early Thursday morning on suspicion that she set two cars on fire. Dispatchers received reports of a vehicle fire in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Santa Alicia Dr. around 8:54 a.m. The first responding officer arrived on scene to see one car fully engulfed in flames and another vehicle on fire some distance away. After the incident was upgraded to a structure fire, responding crews extinguished the flames quickly. No one was injured and no buildings were damaged, though the vehicles sustained an estimated $20,000 in damage. Officers investigated the incident as possible arson. Evidence and interviews led investigators to arrest 37-year-old Aftan Burnett, who lived nearby.
