WILKES-BARRE — Testimony continued Wednesday in Luzerne County in the trial of a woman accused of setting a fire that destroyed several homes and businesses.

Gail Schneider of Berwick is charged with torching her apartment in the Lantern Lane building in Conyngham in September, 2010.

In court, prosecutors said Schneider was caught on security camera, driving by a nearby business just before the fire started.

They claim she set the fire because she was upset that she had been evicted.

Testimony is scheduled to continue Thursday at the Luzerne County Courthouse.
