Darlene M. Callan
A 54-year-old South Main Street woman has been charged with arson in the third degree for allegedly setting a fire in a bedroom of her home around 5 p.m., Monday.
The bedroom had fire and smoke damage but city firefighters were able to put the blaze out before it spread.
Interim Fire Chief Dan Herberger said that the actual cause of the fire cannot be released yet because it's still under investigation.
City fire was dispatched after a woman ran to a neighbor's house and said her bedroom was on fire.
After an investigation, it was determined the only person at home at 189 S. Main St. was Darlene M. Callan and police say evidence indicates she started the fire.
Several subjects at the scene were interviewed, police say.
Callan was held on $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.
The investigation was conducted by Officer Jamie Givens, Sgt. Dan Coffey, Det. Kevin Czora and Capt. Craig Williams.
