A Bemidji woman was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for first-degree arson.
Thirty-five-year-old Cassandra Mountain was sentenced Jan. 26 after entering her guilty plea last November.
First responders arrived at a residence on Tranquility Drive last May on the report of a fire, with Mountain reportedly contacting authorities while they were en route that the house was on fire because of a pizza in the oven.
After extinguishing the blaze, they found no pizza but they did find a trail of motor oil and stab marks on some electronic devices.
Mountain’s first-degree property damage charge was dismissed.
Mountain reported to the Shakopee Women’s Prison and received credit for 259 days served in local custody.
