A woman was arrested after being accused of throwing a flaming gasoline-soaked t-shirt at a North Fort Myers home over a relationship problem.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, deputies and firefighters responded to a residential fire along Slater Road Monday night.

Residents at the home said Nicole Sosa, 51, became heated over relationship issues.

Sosa used a torch to ignite a gasoline-soaked t-shirt and threw it at a door to the residence, according to LCSO.

Deputies say Sosa fled the scene but returned a short time later and was arrested.

Sosa faces an arson charge and is being held on a $75,000 bond. She is a career offender and criminal registrant.
