Merced Woman Arrested on Arson Charges

Police say the woman admitted she'd been using methamphetamine and started a fire at West 12th Street.
A Merced woman has been arrested for a fire that burned three apartment units.

Investigators say 49-year-old Arlene Lopes called the Merced Police Department early Tuesday morning saying she'd been using methamphetamine and had just started a fire at West 12th Street.

The woman told police she set the fire because someone who lived at the apartments had stolen some clothing from her.

No one was hurt but the three-unit building is a total loss.
