HENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (12/26/19) — A woman was arrested in Henderson County tonight for allegedly setting fire to her boyfriend’s house.

Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported deputies responded to the 14,000 block of U.S. 41-S related to the 7 p.m. blaze.

A 911 caller told authorities they believed the woman, identified as 29-year-old Kendra Scott, started the fire and sent pictures of the flames to her boyfriend, who was leasing the home, according to the report.

Deputies indicated when they got to the scene, the doors were barricaded. With the aid of Robards Fire Department crews, they were able to break down the front door to find that no one was inside.

HCSO reported Scott was found hiding in the woods behind the residence. She told deputies that she "lit her boyfriend’s home on fire” to fix the "mold problem.”

Scott was charged with third-degree arson and taken to Henderson County Jail, where she was not yet listed as an inmate this evening.

Niagara Fire Department and Rescue also assisted at the scene.
