Mother says daughter intentionally set home on fire

Posted: Updated:

LAKESIDE (CBS 8) - Investigators have determined a house fire in Lakeside Tuesday afternoon was intentionally set.

Firefighters extinguished the house fire at 13266 Lakeview Grenada Drive in about 20 minutes, after arriving on scene around 4:30 p.m.

Investigators say the adult daughter who lived in the house with her 74-year-old mother set the fire in one of the bedrooms. Witnesses say as the mother tried to escape, the daughter repeatedly tried to drag her frantic mother back inside the burning home. Those witnesses then intervened, detaining the grown daughter until police arrived and took her into custody.

The mother was taken to UCSD Medical Center to be treated for smoke inhalation. The daughter was also transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Once released from the hospital, the daughter will be booked into jail and charged with arson among other charges.

Authorities have visited that house several times over the years for reported disturbances.
