MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A woman has been arrested on a charge of starting a fire that did $25,000 worth of damage to the First Baptist Church of Montgomery.
Court documents show 27-year-old Xiaoquin Yan was charged with second-degree arson and jailed with bond set at $30,000. The woman has addresses in both Montgomery and Auburn.
Court records don’t show whether she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf. A report says someone set fires in multiple locations in the church on Friday. Court documents don’t provide any possible motive.
