An Annsville woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly set fire to her mobile home while other people were still inside sleeping, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Nena Loveland, 26, is charged with felony second-degree attempted arson.
Around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday, deputies responded to Martin Court in the town of Annsville to assist the Taberg Fire Department with a possible structure fire at a mobile home. Deputies say an investigation found that Loveland, who lives in the mobile home, allegedly intentionally started the fire while other residents were still inside sleeping.
The other residents woke up when the smoke detectors went off, and deputies say they were able to subdue the fire, which caused minimal damage to the home.
One resident sustained burn injuries trying to put out the fire and they were transported by ambulance to Rome Memorial Hospital. Deputies say the injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening.
Loveland was located a short distance from the fire and arrested. She’s currently being held at the Oneida County Jail while she awaits arraignment.
