A woman was badly burned on Monday night in Morris, Alabama, when she set fire to her estranged husband’s trailer.
According to WBRC, the woman had to be treated for multiple burns.
The fire occurred on the 6000 block of New Castle Road around 11:30 p.m. Monday when the 47-year-old woman set fire to a travel trailer that belonged to her husband. She then drove herself to the Birmingham Fire Station on Carson Road for treatment of burns she’d received during the fire. Shortly after Jefferson County deputies responded to a call about a house fire on New Castle Road.
The suspect admitted to authorities that she had intentionally set the fire by pouring gasoline in the trailer. She then ignited the fire while she was still inside the trailer, causing a small explosion that burned her arms and feet. The woman said she and her husband had been separated for a month.
The fire grew so large that her father-in-law’s house, which was right next door, was also burned.
No one else was injured in the blaze.
WBRC reports that charges are pending until the investigation is closed.
