City woman arrested for arson

A city woman was arrested on multiple charges after she intentionally set a fire inside her south side apartment Thursday afternoon around 5:20.

Lisa Ryherd (pictured), 47, of 450 Kristina Drive, Apt. 15E, set her bedding on fire.

The Bellefontaine Police Department and Bellefontaine Fire Department responded after neighbors saw Ryherd drag the smoldering bedding from her residence.

Ryherd, who was heavily intoxicated, was charged with a felony count of arson and a misdemeanor count of public intoxication.

Officers filed an arson charge because the fire was set in an occupied structure.

Ryherd was lodged in the Logan County Jail.

The fire was contained to her bedding.

No one was injured.
