Transient accused in a Paulden mobile home fire

PAULDEN, AZ - Authorities say a transient is being held on a $50,000 bond in connection with an arson at a Paulden mobile home.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 23-year-old Alicia Webb was booked Saturday into the Camp Verde Detention Center on suspicion of arson of a structure, trespassing, burglary and criminal damage.

Deputies were called about 8:30 p.m. Saturday about a mobile home on fire.

Neighbors say they saw an unknown woman enter and leave the home on at least two occasions after the family left hours before the fire.

The woman later was identified as Webb, who's a former acquaintance of one of the family members.

Authorities say Webb was located near Highway 89 in Paulden. She reportedly said she lit clothes on fire inside the home because she was angry.
