From the State Fire Marshal's Office:

TANGIPAHOA PARISH (Nov. 7, 2018)---The State Fire Marshal’s Office has arrested a Tickfaw woman wanted for setting a mobile home on fire in June.

Barbara Granger, 43, turned herself in to SFM deputies Wednesday morning, November 7, less than 24 hours after a request for assistance in locating her was shared with the public through local media outlets and agency social media accounts.

Granger has been booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on one count of Arson With Intent to Defraud.

On June 25, the Natalbany Fire Department responded to a small fire at Granger’s mobile home in the 11000 block of Griffin Road in Tickfaw.

The next day, firefighters were called to the same address for a fully involved fire.

The SFM would like to thank local media outlets and the public for your tips and pressure, in helping deputies close this case with an arrest.
