KENNEWICK, WA - A woman from Clarkston, Washington is now in the Benton County Jail after police say she set a Kennewick home on fire.

Kennewick Police say 34-year-old Latasha Marie Odell set fire to a home on the 400 block of 1st Avenue back in September.

67-year-old Marcilla Roger was inside at the time of the fire, but officers say she got out safely. That night, Roger said her dog, "Baby Girl," alerted to her to the flames. 

On February 17th, police say detectives received a tip that Odell was bragging about starting the fire.

Officers say Odell has ties to the Tri-Cities, and was in Pasco at the time, about to leave town. 

Police arrested Odell at the Tahitian Inn Hotel in Pasco for first degree arson and residential burglary.
