Volunteer Firefighter Arrested
A woman who was a volunteer firefighter was arrested for allegedly setting three fires.
Officials with the Louisiana State Fire Marshall's Office say that Kelly Deville admitted to them that she set three fires in Alexandria and Longville in the span of a month's time.
Deville was booked already into the Rapides Parish Jail on two counts of aggravated arson and one count of simple arson for the Alexandria fires, and yesterday she was booked into the Beauregard Parish Jail for two counts of simple arson.
The thirty-three year-old woman lives about the length of a football field away from where two suspicious fires happened back in May. Officials say they were called out at that time to an abandoned mobile home.
In this same area, there had been a fire of a mattress, next a fire in front part of the property and then there was fire in the same area but it was contained to a truck bed camper.
Fire officials say a few days later there was fire at an abandoned house that was on Dusty Lane.
She says drugs and alcohol is what led her to set the two fires.
