A woman was arrested for allegedly setting her own property on fire in the Little River Community.
Betty Boone, 66, was booked in the Baldwin County Jail for arson and conspiracy.
FOX10 News went to Little River to find out more on this arrest and in the process found Boone's son is the man law enforcement believes set three wildfires in the same area.
There is a saying in Little River, "You can't throw a rock without hitting a Boone." Now, two of them are in hot water.
Betty Boone was arrested Thursday, April 4, for allegedly setting a home she owns on fire.
State Fire Marshall's said she was renting the property out.
Linda Portwood said she was in the process of moving out when she heard it was on fire with a lot of her things still inside.
"Our linens, clothes, our bed, TV microwave and stuff like that," said Portwood.
Little River Fire Chief Larry Kiper said they tried to save what they could.
"When we arrived on the scene, it was fully engulfed. Everybody was trying to put the fire out, and I was given some information about the fire that I passed along to the forestry commission and the fire marshall," said Kiper.
That information led to an investigation and the arrest of Betty Boone.
Portwood said Boone made a threat to her boyfriend before the fire.
"She was going to burn the house down," said Portwood.
FOX10 News uncovered that Boone's son is also accused of setting fires, and he lives right behind the rental property.
Anthony Boone was arrested in January for allegedly setting three wildfires.
"We got the tip from the volunteer fire department, and we did an investigation on it, and we had eyewitnesses that either had seen a guy set a fire, allegedly, or was coming away from fires up there," said Donnie Parker with the Alabama Forestry Commission in January.
We went to Betty Boone's address to get her side of the story, but she did not want to talk.
The fire marshall said this is an open investigation.
