A Bemidji woman is facing first-degree arson charges for a fire near Bemidji last week.
The fire, on Tranquility Drive, was described as “suspicious” and caused extensive damage to the home.
No injuries were reported.
Thirty-four-year-old Cassandra Mountain is facing first-degree charges of felony-level property damage and arson.
The complaint says the homeowner requested the removal of a disorderly person.
Mountain contacted dispatch while officers were en route and stated that the house was on fire because she left a pizza in the oven.
During the investigation, responders did not find a pizza in the oven and found the fire started in the living room, and a heavy trail of motor oil leading from the garage to the living room.
Stab marks were found throughout the home on electronic devices, three TVs, a laptop and an iPad.
Mountain has an extensive criminal history of property damage and disorderly conduct.
Bail was set at $300,000.
Mountain last made a court appearance Monday and was still in custody as of this afternoon.
