Vicksburg woman faces arson charge


VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Vicksburg woman is free on $10,000 bond after being charged with causing an arson fire that displaced three families.

Police told The Vicksburg Post that 30-year-old Zenobia Smith is accused of setting fire to a four-unit apartment building on July 1. There were no injuries as residents had fled their homes before firefighters and police arrived.

Smith was arrested on Tuesday and later released on the bond.

Fire investigators say the blaze left all four apartments uninhabitable.
