EL PASO- El Paso fire investigators have arrested a 29-year-old woman. They say she's an arsonist who set fire to an East El Paso house this morning.

Two dozen firefighters raced to that fire at about 5 a.m. on Parkland near Burges High School. Investigators say 29-year-old Christina Paz started that fire. They say she was at home when the flames started and left without any injuries. Investigators have not said why Paz may have started the fire or specifically why she is an arson suspect.

Paz is held in jail tonight. The fire caused about $50,000 damage to the East El Paso home.
