BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A woman allegedly confessed to starting a fire at a home on East Buchanan St. after an argument with her roommate.
According to police, Lucretia Johnson allegedly told her roommate she would burn the house down during the early morning on Thursday, September 22. She apparently had been drinking and that's when the argument began.
