Woman charged with setting 3 fires in Philly
CENTER CITY - May 23, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police have arrested a woman in connection with three fires sparked this month in the city of Philadelphia.
35-year-old Noelle Bilbrough was taken into custody without incident Tuesday night. She is facing arson and related charges.
Police say she is responsible for a May 17th fire at 4200 Kensington Avenue as well as two fires on May 20th - one at 1529 Sellers Street and the other at a vacant building, located at 4444 Paul Street in the city's Frankford section.
Fire officials say the May 20th fire was the second at 4444 Paul Street in the past year. The previous fire gutted much of the building. Authorities are looking into Bilbrough's possible involvement in that fire as well as several other unsolved fires.
