Woman Arrested for Setting Her Snellville Apartment on Fire - Snellville Patch
A Snellville woman, Charity Nickelson, has been arrested for setting her apartment on fire on Wednesday on Spruce Circle.
Crews were met with smoke and flames that were contained to one room on the second floor. The fire was extinguished and no injuries were reported, according to Gwinnett County Fire Public Information Officer Tommy Rutledge.
A few things tipped police and fire investigators off that things were a little odd about the situation. They had already responded twice to calls regarding that location, once for an animal complaint and again when the woman was found in the parking lot with a burning bowl of dog food.
