A woman is now charged with felony arson after an apartment fire in Richmond. Kevin Quinn reports

A woman accused of setting her boyfriend's apartment and a car on fire at a Richmond apartment complex was arrested last night in Fort Bend County.

Sierra Davis is charged with one count of felony arson, but authorities say an additional count is expected. Davis posted $25,000 bond and is now out of the Fort Bend County Jail.

Richmond Fire Marshal Albert Cantu said she has given a full confession in the two fires.

The fire marshal says the Davis had been living with her boyfriend for about nine months, but when he kicked her out, she allegedly started setting the fires. The fire marshal says the first fires were set on Monday at both the apartment and in his car. However, those were small fires that didn't do much damage, so authorities say, she came back yesterday morning between 5am and 6am and started the fire that gutted the apartment and burned his vehicle.

The fire happened in the 2000 block of Thompson in Richmond Tuesday morning around 5am.

There were no reports of injuries.
