Lisa Ryherd, 47, of 450 Kristina Drive, Apt. 15E, was charged Thursday with arson and public intoxication.
Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department were called to the apartment around 5:30 p.m. after neighbors observed the suspect drag smoldering bedding from her residence.
There was no apparent fire damage to the residence.
Authorities believe the heavily intoxicated suspect intentionally set fire to the bedding.
They charged her because it was an occupied structure.
She was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
