TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Trinity County grand jury has indicted a woman who is accused of setting five different fires.

Constable Woody Wallace said the grand jury issued the indictment Friday to Tommie Ragsdale, who allegedly started the fires in September in order to bring attention and excitement back to her area following a larger fire the week before, started by an 18-wheeler wreck.

In a previous interview, Wallace said Ragsdale was actually helping at the command center during last week's large fire in the same area and she set these five fires because she was feeling lonely.
