Posted By on Wed, Jun 1, 2016 at 9:57 AM

Savannah Fire & Emergency Services investigators have arrested a Savannah woman in connection to a fire at a west Savannah apartment Monday night.

Investigators say 65-year-old Pinkie Smith Hills, 640 W. 39th St., Apt. A, has been charged with arson 1st degree after she tried to burn some of her husband’s belongings in the bathtub of the apartment.

"Investigators say it appears that Hills piled clothes in the bathtub then poured gasoline on the clothing and ignited it," says Mark Keller of Savannah Fire. 

Savannah firefighters responded to the fire at 9:15 p.m. and were able to contain the flames to the bathroom. However, the apartment sustained smoke and water damage. There were no injuries as a result of the fire.

Hills was arrested at the scene and transported to the Chatham County Detention Center, where she awaits arraignment on the felony charge.
