A Citrus Heights woman was arrested Tuesday morning after fire officials said she set her house on fire while another person was inside. According to the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District, firefighters went to Locher Way for a house fire around 2:30 a.m. Metro Fire said heavy flames were already burning throughout the house when crews got to the neighborhood. By the time the blaze was extinguished, officials said no one had been injured by the fire and no other structures were damaged. Investigators said they later determined the fire had been started by the homeowner, Justina Daggett. Metro Fire Capt. Chris Vestal told FOX40 Daggett is suspected of pouring gasoline in the house before setting it on fire. She was arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail, where she faces two counts of arson.
