A woman has been arrested for allegedly setting her own home on fire.

Authorities with the Nashville Fire Department said they arrested 53-year-old Terri Albright on Monday.

Albright was accused of setting multiple parts of her home on fire on March 16.

Officials said Albright has been charged with arson in relation to the fire at her home in the 200 block of Treutland Avenue.

According to investigators, Albright said she left for work around 7:35 a.m. on March 16 and returned only ten minutes later due to allegedly leaving her cell phone.

Reports stated the fire was called in around 8:11 a.m. by the home alarm company.

Firefighters said light smoke was coming from the home when they arrived at the scene from fires set in six different areas.

Investigators said the separate fires were an obvious sign of arson.

One of those areas had a strong smell of gasoline, and authorities said they also found a small, one-gallon gas container near the rear porch steps.

No injuries were reported from the fire.

Albright admitted to officials she set the fire. No further details were available.
