Police in Yuma say they've arrested a woman accused of setting 13 fires around the city.

They say 34-year-old Janice Pablo was taken into custody Monday and allegedly confessed to the arsons.

Police say Pablo reportedly started all of the fires in about a two-hour span Monday morning.

The fires caused an estimated $6,700.

Police say two of the blazes were set inside her house and four outside.

They say three fires were set inside a Food City and two outside the store.

The final two blazes were in an alley behind some apartments.

Police say there were no injuries reported from any of the 13 arsons.

It was unclear Monday night if Pablo has a lawyer yet.
