LITTLETON, Colo. — A woman has been arrested after two people were pulled from a house fire in Littleton late last week

South Metro Fire Rescue (SMFR) said three dogs and two cats were also rescued.

The fire was first reported just after 5 p.m. on May 20 at a home in the 6100 block of South Spotswood Street, SMFR said. That's a few blocks south of Sterne Park and just north of West Caley Avenue.

South Metro Fire investigators deemed the fire to be suspicious, according to Littleton Police (LPD)

Police investigators then went back to the home and determined the cause of the fire to be arson, according to LPD. Officers arrested Jessica Leann Williams on suspicion of fourth-degree arson. She is being held in the Arapahoe County Detention Center under a $50,000 bond.
