Woman suspected of arson in Beatrice fire that injured man

BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities suspect a woman set a fire that damaged an apartment building in southeast Nebraska and injured a man.

Police arrested the woman Tuesday as firefighters put out the blaze at the brick, six-unit building that sits just east of the Gage County Courthouse in Beatrice.

The injured man was taken to Beatrice Community Hospital and then transferred to a Lincoln hospital. His name hasn’t been released.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of arson. Online court records don’t yet show that she’s been formally charged.
