Arrest Made In House Fire


A 23 year old Ponca City woman has been arrested on first degree arson charges in the setting of a house fire earlier this week. Ashley Nicole Hooper was placed under arrest by Ponca City police just hours after a fire destroyed a home at 510 North Pine Street.

The fire was reported at 1:25 a.m. Tuesday and the arrested took place at 9 a.m.  The home was declared a total loss but there were no injuries.  A police spokesman said the arson appears to be the result of a civil disagreement between family members.
