A woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide in connection with an arson fire earlier this week in El Dorado County.
At about 7 a.m. Wednesday El Dorado County sheriff's deputies responded to a fire in the Mt. Aukum area at a home in the 8200 block of Kirk Lane.
Pioneer District firefighters were already on the scene to extinguish the blaze. A sheriff's department press release said that a deputy's investigation revealed that a house guest at the home is suspected of being responsible for the fire.
Deputies found Amber Nash, 33, in the area and placed her under arrest on suspicion of attempted homicide and arson.
