Sr. Deputy State Fire Marshal Oliver Alkire spoke on the incident, noting that “the 911 caller stated that [the suspect] actually went inside the house, set multiple items, multiple fires inside the house.” He added, “She then exited the house and proceeded to sit on a lawn chair where she actually watched the fire spread throughout the house.”
The woman who was inside the home had thrown a trash can down the stairs, blocking her exit out of the building. “She almost burned to death in that house, and I’m just really thankful she’s okay,” Bernal said. She added that the fire “burned” and “singed” Holbrook’s hair.
