HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas woman was arrested on July 15 after officials say she tried to burn down a building in Henderson County.

Karen Lynn Baker, 42, was arrested after the Henderson County Fire Marshal says she started a fire that burned a structure near County Road 2919 in Eustace. Baker was charged with arson.

On July 14, the day before the structure fire, sheriff's deputies were dispatched to an RV fire in the same area. Deputies were told that the fire was arson, but a determination was never made. Baker was not arrested in connection with the RV fire, but the fire marshal says she is a 'person of interest' in that case.
