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.
