LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) - The Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal (LAOSFM) has arrested a Denham Springs woman who is accused of purposefully setting a house on fire.
Officials say the woman, Casey Williams, 31, intentionally set her ex-boyfriend’s house on fire after being evicted from the home. Williams was booked into the Livingston Parish Jail on April 23 on one count of simple arson.
LAOSFM authorities say on April 12, firefighters were called out to a home in the 21000 block of Carew Harris Road in Denham Springs. Investigators discovered Williams was the only person inside the home at the time of the fire, but that neighbors had to alert her to the fire and get her out of the house.
After investigating the scene and interviewing witnesses, it was determined the fire was intentionally set by Williams.
